We drove back to Beaune and walked through their farmer’s market.

We enjoyed lunch at a sidewalk cafe. Their escargot are served in edible shells made of some kind of cracker shaped like the shell.

After checking in, Dave took a nap, still not feeling great. Torben, AnneMarie and I did some wine tasting. The vineyards surround the town. But there are wine tasting rooms in the town for the different vineyards. Since the Danes had their car, they were stocking up on their wine. We bought 2 bottles to share with friends in Switzerland. We also had cremant, it is similar to champagne, but it can only be called champagne in France if is was grown in that area.
|the 13.5 Euros bottle was about $15|

We had dinner at a little restaurant which was a charcuterie with meat, cheese, patè, tomatoes and cucumbers with bread. We also enjoyed the local wines. Luckily Dave felt better and could celebrated his birthday.
