So Day 4 we went to the “culture capital” of France, Nantes. It was amazing. I must go back, like post haste! We got there around noon and so went straight for the cathedral which was stunning-
Not my best picture as the sun was in my eyes, but you can see the moat etc in the back ground, just lovely!-
The view from inside the walls ( apologies a lot with the boy in so only a few to share) –
The castle had a museum inside, but we didn’t bother to go in as it was about WW2, and I won’t lie, pretty much saturated ourselves about that subject recently so we left it in the hope there would be a more historical one near by.
View from the castle wall, you can see the cathedral in the background too.-
Street performers outside-
There are quite a few street performers in Nantes as it is a place that thrives on creativity and wants to be known as a place of culture, which is right up my street!Rather tempted to run off and make my living as one, sadly I can’t play anything..like ANYTHING, so wouldn’t make much!
Our next stop off in the city was rather exciting and funny..put it this way, never take a “surprise me! ” approach to a menu in France. Ever.) That tale is certainly in my next post ( there a lot of fun stuff occurred in this place!)
Sigh, anyway I am off to dream of France again…as the Beruit song says “It’s been a long time since I saw your smile” ..oh Nantes <3
