The Vienne at Chinon and the mighty Loire at Saumur

Two April photos of castles on the two local great rivers, the Vienne and the Loire
click on either to see nice big versions, where the dog can see the rabbit....
 The fortress of Chinon - built in the 1100s - with the river Vienne flowing right to left on its way to join the Loire.

The river Loire, further downstream at Saumur, viewed from the castle's battlements, looking east.
