Just home from France. We spent the first part of our trip in fabulous Paris! The Eiffel Tower is huge and breathtaking.
and visible from quite a distance
A quick break then onto Notre Dame.

Then we took a break... and on to the Louvre

Then a river cruise along the Seine.
And here's a short video I took...while we sat in a cafe waiting for our breakfast. One could spend hours and hours in sidewalk cafes...and we did.
Tomorrow, more on our trip to France!
Lovely pix, Jane,ReplyDelete
I must say, I am quite envious.
Love the photos and your sketch of Notre Dame.
Oh my, how I long to go back I was there about 6 years ago with my daughter who is a French teacher, perfect. However, not quite the city for someone who is celiac and lactose intolerant! Maybe I will participate in another of your European adventures Jane (and Don). However will see you in Taos next summer! Excited for that!!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous pictures and love your sketchbook, can't wait to see more of it...dreaming of Paris now...ReplyDelete
Such fabulous pictures! Thanks for sharing so we can sort of live vicariously thru your photos! And I pretended I was sitting in that cafe with you!!!ReplyDelete
I just love your yoga in public places and those beautiful coffee breaks and snacks! Paris isn't too shabby, either.ReplyDelete
Thanks for getting me in the mood Jane. We are off to Paris next month!ReplyDelete
Merci bien for the wonderful pics Jane! It brings back many happy memories for me. I must say that for as many times as I've been in Paris I have yet to see the Musee D'Orsay, along with other landmarks. I could sit at a cafe endlessly too-and aren't the pastries positively THE best?? Love your yoga pose pics-what fun! Your sketch of Notre Dame is beautiful. I'm looking forward to your next post!ReplyDelete
Tres bon, mon amie! AH Paris. There is nowhere quite like it.ReplyDelete

Thanks for the reminder of Paris. I lived there in the 70s and remember when the Musee D'Orsay opened.ReplyDelete
