Keith Adams commented on a photo in To Laon

Team Anderson posted a similar photo (lampshades as street decoration) a few months ago. I don't know whether it was taken here or elsewhere, but it looked like something I'd have expected to find on a semi-surrealistic Pink Floyd album cover.

I liked it then, and I like it now.

Interesting color variations and pattern in that brickwork. Almost looks like a moire effect in the second tier from the top.

It’s as you’re entering Aubigny. If the track is accurate it looks like you took a detour away from the river for some reason.

I hate biking in thick sand!

I’m glad you found a good restaurant to eat at. We’ve had some issues with restaurants being fully booked so know I reserve ahead.

Hi,
The railway survived to haul sugar beets after the war. These tiny little lines were quite common all over France between the wars, many if not all used to haul agricultural, industrial, or forest products. They lasted until the war surplus material they were built with wore out, and better highways were built.
Cheers,
Keith

The Somme... A million casualties and no tangible result for either side, if I remember correctly. Tragic in every way.

I too have been known to fall asleep while reading, or writing, journals. No reflection on the content, just on my state of exhaustion.

I don't think I've ever seen a gate in the middle of a bridge before. Certainly not one so ornate.

It's actually *too* big. The supporting structure interferes with the main building IMO.

Hi,
In my never ending quest for the perfect andouillette, one of the best I’ve ever found was served to me in Amiens. So I imagine your dinner was of top quality, too.
Cheers,
Keith

French cities and Iowa landscapes all in one day. Cycling doesn't get much better than that.
