Page 5 of 28: Cheverny
After our meal we continued to Cheverny by a very beautiful road. It was a very nice chateau to visit inside as it had all its furniture. We also visited the Tintin museum and the dogs. After that a nice walk around the surrounding park with a lake there and white swans. It was a very pleasant visit especially with a kid, since it didnít last too long. We didnít pay for our sonís ticket; the woman at the kiosk said it wasnít necessary.
We stopped in Blois on the way back to our lodging to purchase a phone card. It was extremely tight in the downtown parking, so we were happy once more to have a smaller car. Other people in bigger cars couldnít park for a while, but we could park easily in a tight spot. We walked a bit in Blois, purchased the card and took a few pictures. Then another stop in Chaumont for pictures, the light was right. Then our GPS guided us through the fields to our campground. The GPS is aware of the smallest, isolated roads and we found this was annoying at times, especially when the freeway was just beside.
A swim at the indoor pool with warmer water followed by a great picnic with chicken, bread and sausages and of course sparkling wine.
