Sheltering from rain during lunch


Overview

A day of rain. All day. Mostly light but occasionally heavy. At those times we managed to shelter under bridges and various other objects. We didn't get soaked but the temperature dropped so necessary to put another layer on. Finished cycling at Saverne and enjoyed a break at a patisserie/coffee shop whilst waiting for a train to Nancy . The weather was terrible and there were no cycle routes to Nancy. Lovely women in the tourist office

booked Nancy accommodation for us when we had given up because everything seemed booked out.
