Stage 10 Carsac-Alliac to Belves

After a morning rain delay, I got started a little later than normal.  However, today’s stage was relatively easy, only one major climb, a kind tail wind, and a relatively short distance.  However, the theme of the day did not disappoint, CASTLES!  More castles than you can shake a stick at!  In fact, it was like bison in Yellowstone Park after a while, I eventually quit taking pictures of every one and just stopped for the coolest of the coolest!!   These castles were all built up along the top of the canyon along the Dordogne River.  It was like one mideivel barron named Jones was trying to out-do the next medieval land barron, by the way also named Jones.

So here are some castles, in no particular order:
