Day Four – The Castles

First, let me tell you how big of a deal the rains and flooding were. They reported 50 year flooding on the Loire River, evacuated over 1,000 residents and put 600 motorists in shelters last night!  The rain stopped overnight and the river dropped 12″ by morning. 

Ok, now onto the rest of our story…

Today we took in three castles; Château de Chambord is the first we visited. The bus pulled up and the parking lot was closed to flooding. So we were dropped off and walked the forest path to the castle. 


The most in front of the castle had breached the walls but the tour director and group decided to do a group tight wire act to get to the other side. 


The castle was closed for tours, no surprise, but we were able to walk around the front and side to see more.


I found a couple of Slimeys on the way out. Cute, aren’t they?


…to be continued.
