On our way to Amboise.

15 mins later he was riding this. [Awwwww!]

The royal castle at Amboise.

This is part of the view from the top.

The chapel at the castle.
Leonardo da Vinci's tomb is inside.

The stained glass windows inside the chapel.

I took this from the roof of the castle.

Outside a souvenir shop.
(We bought the kid a toy sword and shield here.)

The castle at Chenonceau.
Henry II gave this chateau to Diane de Poitiers.
She was his mistress, 20 years his senior.

There is a maze in the gardens.
This is what you see when you exit the maze.

Diane de Poitiers had the gardens put in.

Catherine de Medici took the castle back when the king died.
Then she exiled Diane de Poitiers.

The hubby and the kid in the gardens. [Awwwww!]

This photo was taken at 7:00 p.m.
And the weather was still gorgeous!
