Ol' Man River  Saône

View of dawn over the river Saône at Macon, a major tributary to the Rhône. Our motel room and terrace opened directly on to the river banks: it's surprisingly reassuring the way a major river “just keeps on rolling” past. The textures of the surface constantly changing but always moving steadily and incessantly downstream. Local wine excellent... we chose and enjoyed a bottle of Azé (Maconnais) as we had driven amongst the vineyeards.
