In this part of France, there is abundant stone, so naturally homes and other structures are made of or incorporate stone. This ancient stone oven is a perfect example.  The door is made from the other item found everywhere…wood.

We arrived!!  We made it to France via KLM, who took great care of us, and have caught up (more or less) on our sleep.  We’re near Ternuay-Melay-et-Saint-Hilaire, in the region of  Franche-Comté (the latter half of that name also the name of a famous cheese.)  There is rather distinctive architecture in this area and one of the main features is the use of stone, which was left by glaciers many years ago.  Here are a few photos from our first foray into the countryside.
