Chateau of Chambord





The surrounding gardens





Another lovely day in France with clear blue sky and temperature in the low 30's. Today we enjoyed more chateaus. First was Chateau de Chambord, construction started in 1519, with Francois as king of France. Many kings followed till the revolution, when even furniture was sold off. Finally after many owners the French State acquired the Chateau. In the afternoon we visited Chateau de Chenonceau, only Karen had the energy to view the building. It was a lovely sunset again as we walked back over the Loire River.
