Here's a two-minute diaporama made up of a dozen photos of the village and château at Chaumont-sur-Loire that I've taken over the past 20 years. By car, Chaumont (pop. 1100) is on the Loire river about 20 minutes SW of Blois and the same distance NE of Amboise. It's also about a 30-minute walk from the train station in the town of Onzain on the opposite bank of the Loire river, so you can get there by train from Tours, Amboise, or Blois. On a sunny day, it would be a nice walk. You can read about Chaumont and its 15th-century château here.
Tomorrow is my day to get my Covid booster shot. It's about time. Walt is still waiting for the call from the pharmacy to set his appointment up. By the time the third shot kicks in, it will probably be about time for a fourth. Wouldn't a miracle — the Covid-19 virus vanishes from the face of the Earth, for example — be nice right now?
