Rhone Cruise: Viviers and Nuclear Power

Viviers is a small walled medieval village on the Rhone. Climbed past sycamore trees and up cobblestone streets to St Vincent Cathedral for a surprise organ concert. The organist also had a special relationship with the Cathedral cat. 

Some homes are beautifully restored and others are in ruin. 

Flooding is a constant worry but not so much nuclear power. Our guide pointed out a nuclear power plant and claimed that nuclear energy supplies 70% of France's energy requirements. 
Back on the ship, we were enjoying a relaxing bistro dinner when Richard spotted something ominous and scary behind me. 

Turned out to be a common nuclear power plant - nothing to worry about (touch wood).
