Due to a problem with the bus timetable, we couldn't continue where we had left off in Les Ecorcheresses
until a few weeks later. The weather now was more pleasant, and we headed out through wooded valleys towards the
former Abbey of Bellelay, passing through some pretty villages on the way. Sornetan, for example, had a nicely renovated church.
Unfortunately after that we missed our path, and ended up climbing under fallen trees and through thick undergrowth before
getting back to the official way!
Bellelay Abbey is the home of the cheese Tête de Moine, first made by the monks in the 12th century, and there is
a museum there with some large hay-bale statues. The abbey itself was turned into a clinic at the start of the 20th century.
