... something for Eli to eat as he hadn’t had any lunch yet.
We headed outside towards the gardens. These were so beautiful, I hadn’t seen anything like them before! Very neat and well ordered. You should check them out on google earth. They would look really good from above! It was still raining so Eli didn’t want to hang around much as we also weren’t sure when Mike and Kyria would be waiting for us. However, we spied some golf carts that ...
... antlers over 6000 years old from an ancestor of the elk which was found in the Siberian ice fields 200 years ago. The antlers are hung at the actual height of the animal! The chateau's immaculately manicured gardens (including seemingly endless pathways of beautifully raked gravel) were a sight to behold, and we both came away feeling quite wowed.

We got Orleans late-ish but went for a bit of a stroll to find dinner. That's when we stumbled across the cathedral. Normally it would be closed at that time but there was a military orchestra concert on. So for 5 euro we got to hear beautiful music in the most beautiful location. Scored!!!!
