Exploring the Lovely Île de Versaille in Nantes

The weather is still lovely in Nantes and I’m trying to make the most of it—it could be winter again when I come back to Canada.

I took a long walk to the Île de Versailles, a small island on the River Erdre. The place is modeled after a Japanese garden, and dotted with patches of bamboo, rhododendrons and bonsai trees.

It’s a great place to get an “out of the city” feel, even though it’s tiny and can be crowded on nice days. I love seeing trees in bloom—the landscape was still very winter-y ten days ago in Canada!
