In mid July our elder granddaughter came for a 3 week holiday.
I had not seen her for a few years due to my health problems
I cannot tell you what a delight it was to see her arrive at the
airport with Mr P ( Papi to her )
I'd booked for us to stay the night in Nantes as a surprise.
The bigger surprise however was to go to "Les Machines " to visit this wondrous place and to ride on the elephant and the carousel.
Moments of magic which will stay with the three of us for ever.
|The Carousel is based on the 3 levels of the ocean.|
This is the top for the things that are on the sea.
|The flying fish were so beautiful.|
|Just loved this turtle's face.|
We all went on the elephant and one ride for Papi and me on the carousel but 4 rides on it for her.
She loved it and so did we.
|Georgia inside a fish - pulling levers to make it move its fins and tail.|
|Avery happy little girl.|
However I think she enjoyed being sprayed by the elephant even more.
The children waited and encouraged the man driving the elephant to soak them !
It was so good to watch so many people having such a happy time
Moments like these last forever.
