It was a grayish, autumnal day, the wind blowing the leaves around us as we walked around the grounds of the castle before we went to the little eatery and enjoyed some authentic French crepes. We had spent the better part of the morning discovering the castle itself, which, to our delight, was almost barren of tourists at this time of year. I ventured throughout its dark and empty spaces to reach the balcony, from whence I breathed in the inspiring view of the nearby countryside, around me the spires rose into the dark French sky, lifting my soul with them. this was, after all, Chambord, I had never seen it and did not know where my kind friend Sophie was leading me. I took a picture in front of the bridge with the castle behind us, the wind blowing the leaves in our faces, the green of the grass contrasting with the gray sky and the white/black facade of the castle...some images you just never forget. To me, this will always be France at its best.
