Trip Report - France 2011 - October 6th - Tournus, Burgandy

In the morning the boat was docked at Trevoux, but sailed at 7am.  After breakfast we listened to a lecture on the wines of Burgandy. As we moved north some of the foliage was starting to change color.

We see swans all along the Rhone and Saone.
A herd of swans. Usually we only see one or two at a time.

After lunch we take a bus to visit St. Philibert.  Some of us go down into the crypt.

Afterwards we visit a family vineyard and taste wines from the region. We re-board the boat at Chalon-Sur-Saone. 

Tonight is our last night on the boat and we are offered a cocktail in the lounge and there is a gala farewell dinner. I would like to continue sailing.
