When I was in 4th grade I checked out a book from the library on the Chateaux of the Loire Valley of France. I was fascinated and kept the book for some time, renewing it multiple times. Well about 31 years later I got to see them for real. Chenonceau was one of my favorites. I couldn’t believe there was a house that actually straddled a river.
Although the River Cher didn’t seem all that big in person, it kind of dwarfs Ron and Barry in their rent-a-boat in the final photo.

    Your trip looks amazing! I've been here and to Chambord – on my honeymoon. Good memories.
