A gigantic day in Nantes

We walked around downtown Nantes before going to see the Giants. Nantes is a lovely city with some really unique sites and great shops.
One of everything please!

This children's store was called Million Dollar Baby... I don't think the French have seen the film.

007 Meerkat!

French Hitler cat!

This huge wall mural is in the middle of the city. It tells the history of Nantes. There were hundreds of people taking pictures of it. I love how the French are obsessed with taking pictures.

Royal de Luxe is a French marionette theater troupe that created these gigantic marionettes. They travel all over the world. I was lucky to be in Nantes the same day they were!

La petite géante

A truly unique site.

These people had a great view. Their sign says a kiss for the giant! I love it.

There's a giant in that box. It's a bit difficult to see, but they are standing on two semi-truck trailers that is in mid-air. Incredible.

A gypsy and a bunny.

Menthe à l'eau= mint syrup with water! plus Julie looks cute!

Aude is super cute too!

We stopped at a cafe to eat sandwiches and have drink... not 15 minutes later, the giant showed up! We had the best seats in the house!

I'm crazy for hats. It's official.

Thanks for reading!
