From Varzy we continued our tour of the Burgundian wheat fields, arriving at Clamecy on the Canal du Nivernais in time for the grand final of the World Cup of football, which France won.
The celebrations that followed were a sight to behold and we joined in with enthusiasm.
After that we only had one more day of reverse pilgrimage before we got to Vézelay itself, but the odour of sanctity about the place was not to our liking, so we descended to the village of St-Père, where there was a camping ground, a bar and a restaurant, all excellent.
