2017 France #4

4"x 6"  Original Watercolor - A Painting A Day
France #4   $275.

I went with an interior today just to shake things up!
This is from Chateau de Cheverny.

Day 4
This is a two castle day but it did not start out smoothly.  We were on a toll road and put in our ticket
and the toll came up 62 euro!  This should be a 5 euro drive.  No people around and the gate will not go up unless you put in the required amount.  There was nothing we could do but pay!
We arrive at Chateau de Cheverny in time for the feeding of the dogs.

100 tricolor anglo-french hounds.  (a cross of English Fox Hound and French Poitevins)  Now that was a sight to see.   This chateau was spared from destruction during the Revolution because the owners were well liked so it is beautifully decorated and had a lived in feeling.   Probably our favorite.
Next was Chateau de Chambord

This was HUGE!  And it was packed, took an hour in line to get our tickets.  We rented ipads as a guide and they were a little hard to use.  The showstopper here was the staircase and I did not take photos.   Another long day of walking.

This is my last blog until Tuesday.  Off to Saratoga Springs, NY
