Heading into Switzerland

We left our hosts in Vagney on a gloriously overcast and drizzly morning, it had been raining since the early hours ( and probably even before that). Although the roads were we and there was low cloud on the hills we decided to take tbe scenic route over the Ballon D' Alsace where we had been the previous day.
Stopping at the top for a hot chocolate after having seen the temperatures drop from 12 degrees down to 5 degrees at the top with visability about 50 metres, even la vache have come down to the car park to graze and bells can be hesrd clanging all around. More bikers arrive as we are about to leave, Germans on an FJR 13, Super Tenere and a 'Tractor'.

Picture to follow.........

The route down from the summit was just as misty but soon cleared as we neared Banfort through some good biking roads and a detour along the scenic roads took us to a small patisserie for a lunchtime snack.

Getting a bit damp under the wheels and just a little cold we make our way rather quicker than expected across the border into Switzerland to Bonfol, to the home of Yolanda and Joggi, friends of Joey from a few years back. Only 100km but it's taken us over 4 hours.

Looking forward to some home cooked food and a good nights rest after the usual socialising and swapping stories.

Lovely little village and I'm sure we'll get used to the church bell sounding every 15 mins!
