Chateau Chaumont

Today the weather was so pleasant as it has cooled a little. We had a lazy drive down to Orleans which is south of Paris, where we stopped for a break and then left the highway to take a scenic route down the Loire River.

This is just so beautiful and what we have been looking forward to, as it is so much more peaceful away from the hustle and bustle of Paris. We have stopped at Chaumont and are camped right next to the river and have decided to spend a couple of nights here as it is a nice place to ride the bikes and for Dom to drop a line in the river. The Chaumont Chateau is only ½ kilometre ride away by bike and sits as a backdrop against on the river.

Went for a bike ride into Ouzain just over the river and tried to phone home with no success and just on getting there Kath got a flattie. Had a 3 kilometre walk back with her bike so she got in some good exercise.
