OCT 31st Ouhans TO PONTARLIER, FRANCE  VF Day 45

 SNOW IN PASTURE ON MY WAY TO PONTARLIER, FRANCE



 MET THESE TWO WONDERFUL LADIES ALONG THE WAY. DID NOT SPEAK ENGLISH. SHOWED THEM MY Via Francigena CREDENTIALS AND VF ACCOMMODATIONS LIST AND THEY CALLED AND MADE RESERVATION FOR ME IN PONTARLIER, FRANCE. AFTER WALKING WITH ME INTO TOWN WHERE THEIR CAR WAS PARKED, THEY DROVE ME TO THE OFFICE OF TOURISM. MERCI BEAUCOUP!


OFFICE OF TOURISM GAVE ME CURRENT MAPS FOR THE NEXT SECTION AND RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATION ... I ALWAYS TRY TO FIND THE SMALL LOCAL PLACE. THIS ONE WAS SO VERY GOOD. 





THIS IS THE MIDI LUNCH AT Restaurant La Pinte Comtoise. 


THEY ARE TURNING PEOPLE AWAY WITHOUT RESERVATIONS. THE OWNER TELLS ME YOU MAY HAVE THIS TABLE TO EAT FOR ONE HOUR. WELL, I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT SHE WAS SAYING. ANOTHER CUSTOMER WAITING FOR A TABLE TOLD ME WHAT SHE SAID. O MY GOODNESS. THIS WAS ANOTHER FANTASTIC MEAL. YOU SHOULD TASTE THE Spätzle. AND THE BEEF WAS SOOOO TASTY AND TENDER. NOT SURE WHAT THE VEGETABLE WAS .. EXCEPT YUM YUM YUM




CHOCOLATE MOUSSE WITH TINY BITS OF CHOCOLATE AND CREAM SAUCE AT THE BOTTOM AND WHIPPED CREAM ON TOP.
