This morning I learned the proper way to eat goat cheese for breakfast in Chinon.
Pour on a little local honey and crack a few walnuts on top. Voila!
Mr. B had alternative plans....Chinon or not....he is attempting to taste his way through every jam produced in this region.
The resident cat, Booby, meowing at my feet for a little petting & a little food.
Leaving the Loire, we headed to the Perigoid on little two lane roads. This happens to be a wide road in the photo but I just love the long rows of plane trees!
We stopped at several churches and several castles. I seem to be on a Joan of Arc route lately. One castle we just happened upon was where Joan of Arc stopped to asked for War Horses, which she was granted.
PS: a gargantuan bat just flew into our room as we were getting ready for sleep. Mr. B shooed him out with a bath towel after about five minutes! Time to lock our terrace door.......no more of that fresh air for us!
