Magic Roundabout 7

Yes there back!

Its over a year since we did our last roundabout but whilst out on our travels earlier in the month this one caught our eye. Located at the junctions of the D960 and the D761 on the outskirts of Doué-la-Fontaine it features something that you would least expect on a French roundabout.


Can you see what it is yet?

Why there is a Giraffe in the middle of a roundabout we did not know at the time.

But a quick look on Google earth and...

it reveals that the roundabout is right next to 'La Zoo de Doué-la-Fontaine.' which has a tower of Giraffes and some good revues from Tripadvisor.

Ha, now that is a good place for a giraffe to be next to the Zoo me thinks. Enjoy your weekend. Diane

I love so many of the French roundabouts, especially the Chatellerault ones. The giraffe is cute!
