Some More From The Island

Just a few leftover shots from the island at Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher.

The downriver, or western, point of the island. This looks like a directional signal for boats coming up river. If you went left instead of right, you'd miss the lock and end up facing a spillway that you couldn't navigate.

This is looking downriver from the point of the island. Not far from here, the Château de Chenonceau spans the river.

Above, the Grand Hotel de Saint Aignan faces the river. Friends of ours have stayed here and told us that it's a very nice place. I've eaten lunch in the dining room, but have never seen one of the rooms.

Patterns in the lock at the bridge.

I have no idea what this is. I'm guessing it's an access point to a storm drain or something whose entry is above a certain high-water mark. Either that or it's the pulpit in the church of the sand bar.

That's it for my island photos this time around. I didn't go this week because I've had a sore throat kind of thing going on. Nothing compared to what Ken had, but a pain in the neck nonetheless.
