    ... so wife and mistress never met!) Built in 1515; 440 rooms, 365 fireplaces and 84 staircases, Hundreds of towers, lanterns and turrets( almost reminiscent of Gaudi in Spain) and so drafty, King Francis I only lived there 42 odd days in 37 years. Saw a lovely owl at the top of the helical staircase. Huge trophy gallery with hunting spoils and weapons from the 1900s. Back to camp, feeling we had spent our money well to see so much of the.

The latter spent his last 4 years there and died in 1519. ...

It got dark pretty quickly but it was a warm evening.

    Tomorrow's going to be a long bus day. Oy.

    ... of what the ballroom looked like with beds lined up for the soldiers. Next door to that was a massively cheesy wax museum, and beyond that was another lovely area housing carriages and some cars. Outside of that was a pond with some geese and several really noisy ducks. I could sit and watch ducks all day. There's something strangely calming about them.

    I walked into the vegetable garden, went around a tree at the corner of a planting bed, and ended up ...

    This morning there are croissants for breakfast, straight from our country boulangerie. The sky has cleared, the sun filters through the trees and a hare lopes across the road in front of my car. And the taste is worth the waiting. I first saw the turrets of Saumur en route to that memorable anniversary holiday, which started in the south west and finished in the Normandy battlefields. My father ...
