This is the first post using a new MacBookPro. It has taken several days to get all the photos and editing software installed and set up the way I like it. Today we have had heavy rain which is badly needed here in California. The rain reminded me of our recent time in the Loire Valley where it rained every day. One of the wettest was when we toured Cheverny. The chateau is still owned by descendents of the original builders, the Hurault family and is beautifully maintained.
