Calais to Montlucon

The day started with fine weather interrupted by sharp showers, but a fine sight of the White Cliffs of Dover from 19 miles away evoked strong emotions, based upon WWII history. We followed the Autoroute to Rouen, then drove across country to Orleans before joining another Autoroute to Montlucon. This small city is roughly in the center of the country and is a good place to stop for the night after about 7 hours on the road. In fact we stayed two nights as we had family to visit!
