... because an adapted version of them we have today! Da Vince never actually manufactured any of his inventions because he was so busy designing new ones. But, a company called IBM took Leonardo's designs, followed them precisely and made models of what they would have looked like had Leonardo made them! Some ideas you may recognize include a parachute, circular life buoy, flippers, a military tank and even a 3 wheeled car! Pretty amazing!
Chambord is another French folly, it never worked for most of its owners, it was built as a hunting lodge by the king and as with other chateau successive kings it was added to over the decades. Appallingly it was lived in for only a few weeks a year ...
Camping for free in a magical place. Just like being at home but surrounded by 2000 years of history. Biking is a delight on dedicated roads, way safer and superior often to the main road. A swim was great and these camp sites have very few bugs ...
... different buildings have been placed around a central courtyard and roughly joined at the corners!!
For something different we went to a museum dedicated to magic and Harry Hudini and enjoyed a live magic show. We also sort refuge from the rain in the cathedral to find an organist practicing, this was a wonderful treat.
... and vineyards to our destination last night, Amboise. Amboise is a hub for touring the most prestigious chateaus of the Loire. It also has its own chateau perched high above the town on the banks of the Loire, but is not regarded as one of the more prestigious chateaus. It is also famous for the Clos Luce which is the place where Leonardo da Vinci spent the last four years of his life.
Another lovely ride ...
