After leaving at 8 pm we had an overnight stop at Sens which is 190 K north east of Blois. It is known for its Gothic cathedral which we didn’t see but it also has this unusual stone, brick and timber church built in the 12th century and refurbished in the 16th century. The parish of Saint Maurice on the Yonne River was the home of fishermen and sailors. We’re heading for Germany via Saint Avold.

Après avoir quitté Blois à 20 heures nous avons passé la nuit à Sens connu pour sa cathédrale gothique que nous n’avons pas vu. Mais j’aime bien cette église en pierre, briques et bois construite au XIIe et remaniée au XVIe au bord de l’Yonne. La paroisse de Saint Maurice était celle des pêcheurs et des mariniers. Nous partons en Allemagne par Saint Avold.
