Today we finally reached Brittany, driving from Le Mans to Angers and then on to Nantes.
Or first port of call was an enormous Auchan on the outskirts of Le Mans; I don't believe I've ever seen such a huge hypermarket! It took several minutes to walk the length of the associated mall before you got there, too! The SW, meanwhile, got diesel and made himself coffee while I was doing that, and then we set off properly.
We took the motorway to Angers, but asked the Sat-nav to take us to the town centre, just because, which it duly did. Then we drove cross-country to Nantes, with the sun shining and generally lovely. We stopped in a picnic area for lunch - I had bought some rillettes du Mans (well, you have to, don't you!), and some strawberry tartlets as a treat. And some French lime juice squash, which is incredibly tart by UK standards, but refreshing if you don't make it too strong.
Our first port of call in Nantes was to a mechanical museum where there was a large elephant the SW wanted to see. We might have gone into the museum but there was a massive queue, and to be honest, it's not really the sort of thing I find interesting! So we walked around until we found the elephant, who was just loading up for his next trip, but he was a bit of a fraud, as he moved on wheels and, although his legs moved, they were not used for locomotion. He was huge though!
After that, we came away and drove through the city to the camp site, which is very nice, and the SW went for a walk while I knitted and got rather chilled, add then he went out for pizza, which we have just finished, and very good it was, too.
