Retarded France

Everyone in France there are signs saying to "Drive Retard." I didn't appreciate being called names. Chris took things a little too literally:

 

Hang on. I have to go smooth things over with Chris after posting this picture. Be back in a week.

And......I'm back. Sooner than expected - I sent Chris off to the Patisserie with a 20 Euro note. She's fine.

After leaving Normandy, Chris told me that she wanted to slow things down (never something you want to hear from a girl), so she steered the trip to Blois in the Loire Valley. It started out blah until our bike ride took us to our future summer home:



Cheverny, or was it Chambord? In any case, it deserves a second photo:



Next up was some other chateau who origin and name I'm sure I've forgotten. I did figure out that it was Professor Plum with the wrench in the study:



But one question still remained. Who let the dogs get excited?



From there we deftly avoided the toll roads on the way through Limoges, Charlotte's Sister City, ending the night in Charlat. Just imagine the French expo at Epcot Center getting expanded to a few thousand hectares.



I tried not to show off, but all the tourists were gathering and in the words of Jimmy Connors at the 1991 US Open, "This is why they came here. This is what they want." -->


On route to the Pyrenees, we passed by more châteaux. And in France, they're as big as castles:



Southern France has sunflowers like opium fields through the Khyber Pass:
