A slice in hand, Dick stops at the Pennsylvania Memorial in Varennes. It is impressive but poorly cared for.
The last two slices of breakfast quiche from the Verdun bakery, toast from the bread from our local bakery, jam and tea. Yummy!
Today we get a little culture. About 11:30AM we hit the road with out proverbial tuna sandwiches, Snickers and small cokes. We pick up the A4 and head for Reims with the cathedral dialed into the GPS. Being Sunday, we find a parking place, for free, quite close and walk to it. The Reims Cathedral is stunning as you approach; lacy looking with tons of carved stone. They have situated the reconstructed city back far enough that you can see it from a distance at its front.
From Reims, we drop down to Verneuil where we cross the Marne to the south side and drive up into the vineyards. The grapes seem small to us but they are not ready to pick just yet.
Home about 6:30PM after seven hours on the road we are ready for drinks and a dinner of spaghetti, salad, red wine and two of the tarts Dick bought this morning in Varennes-en-Argonne. Showers, work on the blog and pictures and some planning for our last day here brings us to bed time.
