The park was an interesting mixture of education and wine promotion. The educational component included both in traditional forms like museum displays and films, and in the form of "rides," like one where you flew over the Beaujolais country side. The promotion included wine tasting and a huge gift shop. A trip to the vineyard was offered, there was a large garden, and miniature golf. Clearly you could spend the whole day there.
When we finally arrived in Auxerre we found that our accommodations at the Hotel Parc des Marechaux were very pleasant. Clearly one could spend a day or two lingering in its comfortable rooms, by its inviting pool, and on its soothing terrace.
But we are out of time. It's now early morning and we'll soon all be up for breakfast, a quick swim, and then on the road to the airport, a two hour drive that will probably take three due to the traffic. Oh, to linger in France for just another day or two!
