John got up early to see David off to his train. They found out no box was needed, so we could use the same train ourselves later in the wee, and avoid the less pleasant ride back into Lyon. Now it was John, Declan and me. We decided to head up toward Albertville, and explore some of the famous passes used in the Tour de France.

On the way up, we noticed a castle. John thought it must be private, so we toured from afar. We had a picnic lunch just below it, and Pamela took advantage of the warm sunshine.
