Loire – a few fotos from end of March 2013

 A rowing boat on the Loire near Langeais

A small selection of photos from late March 2013 (a coldish grey day) on our way from Touraine to Angers for a tasting of Savennières, held on the following day at the Domaine du Closel.

Steady flow on Loire – a river that must always be treated with respect

Near Langeais - towards La Chapelle-aux-Naux?
