Fair Warning...Lots of photos! I will let my photos share my extreme joy of being able to spend two weeks in Paris this summer. I will try to keep my words to a minimum. Iconic Eiffel Tower! Mr. C and I celebrated his one year trauma accident recovery and Summer Solstice at Sunset at the top.
View from our apartment. How joyful to have a place all to ourselves.
Open air market in the Bastille. We love to visit and shop these. Everything is so fresh!
Mr. C sharing with me the blessings of his life.
Our view was the Eiffel Tower. Our delight was a chocolate and chantilly cream crepe.
The amazing architecture of Notre Dame. We had such perfect weather.
Silly me swinging in the park near Notre Dame. I do enjoy childhood fun.
An impromptu orchestra playing lovely music in the metro.
The gorgeous glass dome at Gallery Lafayette. The shopping was over-the-top. Baby Versace!
Oh the glorious Amorino cornet of gelato shaped into flower petals. Yes, I am that happy!
My very favorite beautiful blue sky with white puffy clouds overlooking the Seine.
Fresh flowers in Rue Cler.
A bottle of wine for our picnic.
Le Marche des Enfants Rouges is the oldest covered open air market. We enjoyed marvelous lunch,
Another favorite of mine...Ile Flottante. Meringue floating in cream. This one has carmelized sugar.
Gare du Nord train station. So beautiful.
I shall let the colors speak for themselves here in the open air market. These colors sing!
I know how very fortunate I am to be able to spend time with Mr. C and explore such amazing destinations. We did have a wonderful time in Paris, Provence and Luberon. Traveling really broadens our horizons. To be able to experience other places and cultures is truly a gift.
Many of you are doing rain dances but so far we are still dry with not a drop in sight. I do appreciate your offers and dancing. I wonder if a "dome" of dryness has descended upon us.
Thank you for indulging my photo heavy post. We took over 2000 pictures and it is very hard to select just a few to share. Creative Travel Bliss...
