Though we are spending lots of time packing, we are also trying to pack in as much as possible before leaving. Yesterday, this resulted in a visit to the Lieu-Unique which, in honor of the Voyage à Nantes, is set up like a playground. It was full of putt-putt golfing, 3D basketball, limbo, and many other fun games.
Then, while doing some belated shopping (for Jonathan’s mom’s birthday and our dad’s father’s day presents), we ran into a marching band that was being led, impromptu, by a homeless man. He was great, and so energetic – he danced ahead of them as they played, and he even had an open bottle of champagne in his pants pocket that was sloshing alcohol onto the sidewalk. (We took lots of video).
Last night, Jonathan and I went out for dinner at La Saline – a restaurant recommended to Jonathan by the chef Pascal as being his favorite Nantais restaurant. It was great! We both feel like it might be the best meal we’ve had in France – certainly Nantes. It was just a 2 hour long, delightful feast.
However. We both tried blue cheese for the first time ever, and, after both having thought we hated it for all of our lives, we liked it okay, and finished it off.
Everything was such a serious delight to eat. And, the meal wasn’t even that expensive. We highly recommend it if you’re ever in Nantes.
To complete our date night, we came home and watched a movie which I fell asleep 20 minutes into. It’s really hard to fathom that we only have two nights left in our little apartment.
