Every good holiday must come to an end…

Last night, the chef surprised us with a special supper, a taste of Provence.

Lyon taste of Provence

We are served bouillabaisse, ratatouille, chateaubriand, apple pie… Délicieux!

Our Maître d’Hôtel, Ryan, gets dressed for the occasion.

Our last day in Lyon is spent exploring the city on our own.

Lyon closed escape game

Roger is so disappointed that the Escape Game is closed lol.

Lyon is the birthplace of Antoine de St-Exupéry, the French author who once wrote :

Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.

and of the ‘Frères Lumière’, the first filmmakers in history.

Lyon, like most French cities, is also known for its crêperies and so we choose to have lunch at the Crêperie des gones.

Lyon Creperie

First we find out that here, the ‘salted crêpes’ are called ‘galettes’, crêpe being reserved for the sweet crêpes.

The crêpe sucrée au beurre salé is the best! We both can vouch for that! Ha!

When we are back at the boat, we attend an information session on The Résistance during World War II. What courage !

And now we need very minimal courage comparatively to get back to our regular lifestyle, less food, less wine and no one to clean our room every day lol

We do say goodbye to our new friends from New York, Tennessee, California, Denver, etc. and especially Doug and Judy from North Carolina. Hopefully, we will reunite with some of you again.

We are very happy to be going home to family and friends and to our beautiful country.  However great the holiday, it always makes you appreciate home:)

Thanks Mel for sending this beautiful fall picture.
