Chaumont

Sunday we visited the Château de Chaumont, among others, which overlooks the Loire river. From certain angles it looks like a perfect fairy-tale castle. It's even got a working drawbridge, although there's no moat.

This is a view into the stable buildings through the gate - the stables were closed this day. We'll visit them one day, I'm sure. The rest of the day included a leisurely drive along the river, a stop for coffee, visiting a wine producer in Vouvray, and a quick look at the cathedral in Tours.

We picked up Susan's husband Ray at the train station, enjoyed a dinner of steak and frites, then headed home.

  1. I've been there but your photos show it much better than my memory. I like your unique views of things. Not like snapshots or postcards.
