We didn’t have breakfast included at our hotel this morning so we went out to find a boulangerie for breakfast. We found one and the breakfast was wonderful.

This afternoon we spent several hours at the Château du Clos Luce Parc Leonardo da Vinci. It is where Leonardo da Vinci lived from 1516 until he died in 1519. The house and grounds were beautifully laid out with examples of Leonardo’ works and machines.

After visiting the chateau we stopped for coffee and a strawberry jam crepe at a table in the sun because you can’t visit France without having a crepe and the sun was shining!

Later Duke did his review of our last rental car the FIAT 500 Hybrid. It is on my YouTube channel here. This review is the sequel to Duke’s original FIAT 500 review and it has some explosive revelations!

Today was Election Day in France we checked out the election action at Amboise city hall.

For dinner we ate at the highly rated restaurant in our hotel and enjoyed great service, a nice ambiance and wonderful food.
