Chartres - from above

As in many cathedrals there is a tower you can climb up on the narrow winding stairs and we did. From the top you can see some of the town itself, and some of the surrounding buildings. There was a Ferris wheel in front that seemed pretty high when seen from the ground but as you can see it is far below where we were is wasn't that high. There was a wedding party assembling below. We got to see the restaurant where we'd eaten lunch. And some statuary and lots of closeups of gargoyles.
