Photography wise it was simply a case of making the best of it. In the small town Amboise on the way back to the UK we got another soaking when a thunderstorm hit one evening. We did our best to shelter from the downpour, but when I spotted this battered old Citroen 2CV driving up the street I could not resist trying to grab a few shots. Standing in the middle of the road I only managed to rattle off four shots before a car came up behind me and I had to get out of the way. Perhaps it was just as well because the rain got into the camera and some of the buttons on the back stopped working. Fortunately it recovered after drying out. It would have been great to have grabbed a few more shots as it got closer but by the time the traffic had passed it had gone.
Later as the storm cleared I grabbed a few night shots of the Chateau and the swollen Loire River.
