I’m a full week late with this one but when I went back to this challenge I realized that I had some great ‘arches’ from our vacation in France and London, England.

Water, Water Everywhere….The Loire River, France
….thanks Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere….https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2022/05/09/canal-reflections-water-water-everywhere-125/
“The longest river in France is the Loire. It is 634 miles (1,020 kilometers) long. The Loire Valley is a popular tourist area known for its châteaus (French for “castles”). The scenic valley is sometimes called the Garden of France.
The Loire River begins about 4,500 feet (1,370 meters) above sea level in the Cévennes mountain range of southern France. It is fed by melting snow from mountain peaks. The Loire flows north through central France before swinging in a great curve past the city of Orléans and turning westward. It empties into the Atlantic Ocean near the city of Nantes.” Sourced from kids.britannica.com
We saw the Loire in Tours and then again on our castle visits in Amboise and Blois.
On our visit to the Royal Chateau Amboise, we saw the river from the top of the castle, overlooking the Loire Valley.
On our last castle tour in Blois we saw the Loire River again from the lookout on the castle grounds and then again at street level.
Castles in France – Part 3
….a visit to Blois to see Chateau Royal de Blois
The interesting part of this castle is that it has four wings from four different eras and in four different styles, arranged around the same courtyard.
From the Outside
Inside the Courtyard
Inside the Château
The wing remained an empty shell covered by an impressive oval dome…..the wing now houses temporary exhibition rooms
In the next post I will share the gardens and the views from the château.
