Along A Canal (Belfort to Baum-les-Dames)

Long 85km day today but much more straightforward than yesterday’s mess.

On the road by 0915, picnic lunch beside a canal lock, little bit of rain to cool us off in the afternoon, and a really nice quiet place to stay, a town-run set of camping cabins just outside Baum-les-Dames.

Nice dinner in the evening arranged by the local tourism folks, good local wine, and the promise of a free guided tour of the town tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow is a very short day, only 36km into Besançon (pronounced something like “boo-ah-zon”) so we’ll make time for the Baum-les-Dames tour then wander toward Besançon.
