But the cathedral was really beautiful and once it cleared up we went for a walk in the three gardens extending on one another at the far end of the city. Here the peacefulness seemed a bit more in place.
For the majority of our holiday, we were quite lucky with the weather, it shifted between gray and blue sky, but for the most part it was warm and we managed to dodge the majority of rain.
After sitting in the park for a while we walked back to the car and ended or trip to Chalon with a cup of coffee for the driver.

These are pictures from Épernay, which we visited on my birthday (a Sunday). A town that I quite liked even though it was small enough that all the bakeries would close around 2. At this point we were still strolling around town and checking out all the impressive houses at Rue de Champagne, where some of the major Champagne producers have tasting houses. So no birthday cake for me this year. (have to admit, I didn't miss out on pastry in the end)
One of the thing I found really charming was that right where the town ended, you would go straight into the vineyards. Afterwards, we drove around the area, but more about that later.
