After visiting Amboise's château and taking a walk through the main part of town (in a light rain), we took our friends J and C back to the train in Blois for their return to Paris. It was a fun and all-too brief visit.
The day after, Ken and I were invited to lunch at our neighbors' house across the street. We had a very nice and relaxed time. There were only five of us and lunch was tasty. We had to eat indoors because the weather was cool and damp. That was Thursday.
On Friday (July 22) we were to pick up more friends from California at the TGV station in Saint-Pierre-des-Corps. Geri, Phil, and their two children, Julia (9), and Conor (6), were coming from London to spend a long weekend with us.
