IMG_20170821_150939262This is the second of two short posts about my summer holiday in France, only this time it’s not really about anything historical.  I was just blown away by Le Grand Éléphant at Les Machines de l’Île in Nantes.  Unfortunately, we arrived too late in the day to have a look round the workshop, but we got a good look at the elephant, the carousel and the prototype branch of the Arbre aux Hérons.  If we go back to the Loire in a couple of years, this will be top of our ‘to-do’ list!
