We are in a hotel on the edge of town so nothing too interesting for exploring in the immediate area but we found a grocery store and restocked diapers, wipes and a few other necessities after breakfast. Cozzie is napping now and I'm on my computer. It's almost time for MBD to load in at the venue for tonight's concert.
We had a lovely day yesterday as it was a day off with no concert scheduled last night. We drove to the town for tonight's concert and will be in the same hotel for 2 nights.
Our drive took us through Paris and we stopped to see the Eiffel Tower and give Cozzie some play time.
In the morning, he and I were able to spend about 90 minutes exploring Vendome while the others slept in then loaded the van. I have lots of photos to share from our day yesterday.

We drove through miles and miles of beautiful farmland yesterday. Looked like winter wheat will again supply this country with what they need for the delicious baguettes and croissants we enjoy each morning. Tough assignment I have!!
Nap is over and time to go to the venue to load in. We'll tag along and enjoy the day with whatever unfolds. Feeling very blessed as my time continues on this tour.
