Leonardo. No, not that movie guy!

Yesterday I visited Chateau Royal D’Amboise. It’s a bit of a drive from here across country roads and a little bit of the AutoRoute “highway,” but a pleasant drive all the same. I’d visited Amboise back in 2007, during my visit to Paris. Since it had been a long day and I didn’t have as much time as I did on this visit, it was kind of a whirlwind tour of the chateau. Yesterday, I had a chance to take my time and really visit and experience it. I decided to start at the chapel , work my way around the yard to the chateau and then explore the gardens.

Upon entering the chapel, I saw this view and spent some time capturing it.

Then I decided to look around. Usually, when there’s a burial site in the chapel, it’s usually someone that I’ve never heard of. Today was different…

Needless to say, I was pretty surprised and impressed.
