Drive-By Chateaux-Shootings

So we think that in our previous travels we have covered the basic chateaux of the Loire. Our slides from 79, 86, 89, 93, and so on, would suggest so. We visited or revisited a few more, as subsequent posts will show. But for some, we just took pix as we drove by.

BIG river















Saumur














Montsoreau














Part of Chinon


















More of Chinon














Still more of Chinon

castles said to have been the inspiration for Minnie Mouse's
castle














Azy Le Rideau; in whose aire we camped like true Europeans,
occupying the last square mm of space

I have been on the road, to Northern Missouri with Diana, then on to Chicago to haul wedding gifts to Cara, so am behind in reading your blog. I love all the chateaus, though. We saw all of these last summer. I am sure that I lived in one of them in a past life!
