Day 17 Making for Millau

Woke up to the sound of the river running by the truck and the sight of some beautiful little birds whirling and diving so fast I couldn't photograph them.
Isn't the mighty Loire tiny up here.
After a trip to the boulangerie for breakfast we had a little walk around Coubon which is a nice little village with a beautiful church the front of which was started in 1100 the pillars still exist.
And has been added to as the village has grown but always using the same local stone
We drove in the vague direction of Millau through stunning scenery until we got to Mende, which looked like a good place for lunch.
We parked up right at the side of the river and next to this superb bridge.
Then after lunch went into the town for a walk around.
I love these photos of places that still exist
Mende has of course got the obligatory over sized church
This one was very lofty inside
With a tiny ancient chapel that pre dates the lofty one underground.
I prefer the little one
Just to finish, some interesting doors
Then on to Millau.
