    Our last day in Provence, a return to our favourite place - Cassis:

    Enjoyed an ice-cream sundae and champagne cocktail celebration:

    Headed northward again. A 2 night stopover in Dijon. Plenty of mustard and very good ice-cream sundaes!:

    From here, it was further north to Reims for 2 nights, where the main attraction was its amazing gothic Cathedral. We also visited Epernay with its pristine champagne vineyards and drove the 'Avenue de Champagne', seeing all the major 'Champagne Houses'. No pics here though - weather turned wet!

    A round trip of 2,747 miles in the Zed, completed without a hitch - the awesomeness of the 1.9i goes on ..............

    If so is that the reason for so few miles on that Big Block car of your's? Take baby steps, you can do it!! Come on, see if you can catch my mileage by the time the snow starts flying. JIM

    Thanks for the whirlwind trip through France. Great shots of some beautiful countryside. I've only been in northern France which is very industrial and naturally dirty and gritty looking. Not the prettiest but still had some nice sightseeing. Glad you enjoyed yourselves, wish I was there. JIM

    That makes sense then, that is why the ///M is always parked up in the garage.
