Our day started with some gentle rain but cleared before the end of the 3.5 hour drive from Brest to Nantes. Scenery today was much the same as yesterday - farms and towns - gently rolling hills.
|Cozzie is dwarfed by this mechanical elephant|
Currently there is a massive mechanical elephant on display there. It is out in an open space but under the roof of this large site. I did not tour this gallery but was able to view the elephant close up.

You've probably noticed that there are no photos with today's blog. Oops, I left my camera card reader in the dressing room at the venue where we spent most of the day - until after supper. I'm sure son James will bring the card reader with him when they come to the hotel for the night but that will be long after midnight so hopefully I'll be in bed by then. Will add photos tomorrow hopefully. Done!
I haven't mentioned yet that Cozzie is learning new words rapidly and using them quite often. He has learned to say "Bon Jour" which is hello (good day) in French. He often says it over and over again in what seems to be perfect diction. But usually when you want him to greet a Frenchman with it, he gets shy and won't say anything until the opportunity passes. Then he says it over and over again. He is also learning to say Good-bye, Au Revoir, and Please, Sil vous plait. Very cute!

Our drive tomorrow is supposed to be just one hour. Maybe a sleep-in morning? Think Cozzie will like that?
His nose is still runny but he slept well last night so we both got good rest. Better take my vitimin C and head to bed.
