Friday: Amboise to Chaumont
Our last full day on the road.
Jayne has been reading about one chateau in particular: at Chenonceux. A portion of the chateau is a bridge across the Cher river. This chateau is one well-known for its beauty. Many of its design features were influenced by the women who owned it.
We end up in Chaumont, whose chateau "dominates the city along the river below" (which of course means a steep hill climb back to the B&B).
Our host Dany helps us get settled into a comfortable room. After a short rest, we hike down to town for a bit of dinner. We select "La Metairie", since it sounds sort of like the Louisiana town Metarie. The chef, a very nice lady, seats us and yells at the very friendly dog from next door who appears at the window by our table. In due course, we have a nice 3 hour dinner followed by a brisk uphill stroll to our B&B.
