Knights in Armor

Greetings from Hotel Diderot in Chinon!


A leisurely breakfast on the hotel gardens....



...with Booby le chat.



A short drive to Chateau d'Azay-le-Rideau.....



On a one lane, back road returning to Chinon, we discovered a 9th century church. And almost got locked in the Cemetary overnight but a sweet little old lady let us out!

Had lunch in Chinon and spent the afternoon at the Royal Fortress of Chinon high above our hotel. This is where Joan of Arc met with Charles XII (before he became king) and received permission to drive the English out of France.



It has been an historic and interesting day! Now time to find a good restaurant for dinner....
