Heading to the Loire

 Heading towards the suburbs of Tours and about to cross La Loire

Now back in the Loire having travelled down from London today.

Buy 3 get 3 Free! an offer on Eurotunnel I can easily refuse!

Sign for Azay-le-Rideau just north of Tours

A familiar landmark – tower at Saint-Pierre-des-Corps

Interesting! Will you be visiting Clos Roche Blanche for that vertical Jim, or do you have those wines lined up elsewhere?

The vertical will be at the Clos Roche Blanche.
