Loire Valley

The Loire Valley is along the Loire River. It is said that Loire River divides North and South of France. The Valley is known for it’s farming, historic towns, architecture and a number of chateaus. We spent the day visiting three chateaus: Chenonceau, Villandry and D’Azay Le Rideau. I, of course, enjoyed the grounds and was amazed at how many flowers, fruits and vegetables were still in bloom in September.

The morning started off very cool which created a fog on the river. There were so many hot air balloons in the sky when I was driving to the first château. It looked like a perfect morning for a ride. Today was also European Heritage day. I thought that meant kids untidier 18 got into things for free, but the last château we visited was free to everyone today.
