(above) The bike ride to Chinon was mostly through farm country. (below left) We crossed the Vienne River at l'Ile Bouchard. (below right) We stopped in a funeral store to take a gander at their merchandise.

(above left and middle) We made it to Chinon just in time for lunch—and to seek shelter in a restaurant while it rained! (above right) After lunch, we toured Chinon and then crossed the Vienne again and headed back through château and farm country (below left and middle) to "home" at the Château du Rivau (below right) After climbing the 94 steps to our room to clean up, we came back down to climb up another tower (only three tall stories) for dinner (bottom left) where we were serenaded while we dined (bottom center)
