    21st September
    We cannot see the River when we wake up, it's covered in mist and when we leave Macon at 10.30am the temperature is only 9c although the mist is slowly rising.
    We did have our petit-dejeuner delivered to our room this morning but we went looking for it at 9.30am as we didn't understand that it would be left in a little passageway between her house and our room!
    Around noon the sun starts to shine, we stop in Beaune which is a walled town in the centre of Burgundy and sit outside at a cafe for coffee, (George has a Kir)! The day has turned really hot and it is lovely to sit and watch the world go by. We continue our drive north heading for Nancy in the Moselle region. We see lots of large birds, buzzards, kites and at least one eagle. We are now in the Burgundy region and we drive through miles of vineyards in the valleys and slopes west of the Saone, We drive through Dijon, the capital of the Burgundy region with its trams and canals, it's lovely to keep off the payage today. We see some beautiful towns including Nuits St George's and Neuf Chateau, we drive over La Moselle River.
    We stop off at a supermarket to buy something to eat tonight as we are getting tired of eating out every night. It is about 6.30pm when we arrive at Dommartin-sous-Amance, we are staying in a farmhouse tonight and are met by at least four very friendly dogs. We hope to have a look around Nancy tomorrow as we are just too tired tonight.
