Day 16 – Saint Thierry to Reims – 11kms

image

Last glimpse of the flower beds at the Benedictine Monastery at Saint Thierry this morning before walking off to Reims.

image

Nice tulip colours but not quite colour coordinated with the cycling vest!!

image

Our path quickly deteriorated from a minor road to a farmers track from Saint Thierry to Reims.

image

Looking back we can see the Monastery from where we’ve walked this morning.

image

We’ve reached the Canal leading us into Reims.

image

In years gone by the Canal provided much essential barge transport for industry and agriculture near here. Now very little industry remains and almost no barge transport exists.

image

We saw one remaining barge moored nearby these very large industrial sheds on the canals edge and assume by its condition it is still used occasionally.

Duck heaven – alongside the Canal.

Magnificent pink blooms on street trees in Reims.
