The special effects and lighting teams did us proud today, rolling out the heavy duty smoke machine and putting a sixty million megawatt floodlight behind the Château d’Amboise. The shadow of the Château cast onto the smoke is particularly impressive. Thanks to the FX and LX crews. This picture was taken from the downstream end of the Golden Island near the youth hostel. I’m not sure it’s a youth hostel per se. It’s run by the local MJC, House of Youth and Culture and you can sleep and eat there cheap.

In the market car park there was a stationary Dutch flower truck. From a side door the trucker was loading flowers into someone’s vehicle. On the top part of the driver’s cab next to a picture of a lovely red rose it said “Torture Chamber N°2” in cheerful lettering. I don’t make this stuff up you know.
Here is the other bank of the river looking northwest. There’s a dead tree looking like a large crab with its legs sticking out of the water. I know. I have an over-active imagination.
