    Vienne

    June 23, 2020 in France ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Yesterday was our last night on the Rhône, we were on another halte fluviale this time on the river bank opposite Vienne, surprisingly peaceful. Vienna had the usual collection of historic buildings and some impressive Roman ruins that we took a self guided walk around. The most impressive for me was the Roman theatre and the view from Mount Pipet and the Church up there. We are beginning to struggle with the weather now, yesterday the temperature was still up at 30celsius at 7 pm today it’s at 34! I find the heat really draining. Today, after sharing a lock for the very first time, our last Rhône lock, we arrived in Lyon and are now on the Saône river, we decided to take a marina berth so we could plug in and charge everything up and use the portable aircon unit to see what it’s like. I am hoping that this heat wave is not usual but think it might be.
    Hope the weathers OK for you wherever you are reading this. Tomorrow we hope to be able to see some of the sights without melting will let you know how it goes.
