23 July 2016 : Is This Heaven?

No, it’s Nantes (and 10 points to whoever got the Field of Dreams reference).

I spent the day roaming Nantes, reconnecting with an activity (walking) I regularly did while on sabbatical. While I didn’t take pictures of every place I went today, I got enough to please at least Chloe and Ella, or so I hope.

I also want to acknowledge the significance of July 23rd over the last several years.

I had already walked 10,000 steps by the time I stopped to read my book at the Jardin des Plantes.

I was crossing from the Ile de Versailles when I took this picture with the Mont Rouge bridge in the background.

Our neighborhood grocery store during the sabbatical is once again our neighborhood grocery store this week.

This is what our sabbatical home looks like today. I walk right by it to get to our home this week. That's Ella's room in the center top of the photo.

And here is the Bertail home, just around the corner from our sabbatical home and a block from where we are staying this week.

My step total so far today. We are still heading out tonight, going to Annabelle's son's, Alexandre's 18th birthday party.
