We walked to the mooring point at noon today, about a mile along the Rhône. The weather was perfect and we were in no hurry so strolled along at leisure. We were able to drop our luggage off and continue our journey to find lunch (French onion soup!) and shop a bit. Our river boat is the MS William Shakespeare (Riviera River Cruises) and it was built in 2014. The ship holds 140 passengers and a crew of 35. It makes for an intimate cruise, which is refreshing since I have only been on ocean cruises with 3000+ passengers. Our cabin is a French Balcony which means we have a large sliding door and panoramic view. It’s truly lovely! The crew are friendly and eager to please. This is the first cruise of this itinerary for the 2019 season and I am proud to be experiencing it, along with my dear friend, Sharon. Tomorrow we enjoy a walking tour of Lyon before we depart in the afternoon and head south. (And no, I didn’t purchase a single macaroon, but they were so beautiful they had to be photographed!)

(Internet is spotty with so many people trying to access it tonight, but hopefully a few photos will upload.)
