It's August...so it's relatively quiet here in Paris....many of the locals have 'gone to the beach' in Portugal, Morocco, Spain, St Tropez and elsewhere. So it's easy to get around and enjoy a summer evening in Paris. The warm weather is finally here.....so we're enjoying it while we can.
The other night Pierre and I headed down to Paris' beach...le plage...(what crazy fun) before going to dinner and then a slow wander home. This is what we saw.
|8pm and perfect weather for la plage.... palm trees et al!|
|Or if you fancy a game of pinball...la plage is the place to be.|
|I definitely want to lounge in one of those slings....|
a very pleasant way to spend
a summer afternoon don't you think?
Picnic, champers, sunnies...and praps a nap.
Just like being in Noosa!
|I've yet to have a misting.....I better get|
down there fast! Praps this arvo.
|Not a bad view is it?|
|We had dinner at Place Dauphine....just near Pont Neuf....a beautiful location. |
A little hidden square (well, kind of)....
where the boys play boules, buskers entertain the tourists and locals....and Tai Chi is practised.
|Dinner over and just starting to get dark....we set off on our|
evening stroll along the Seine.
Voila!! J'adore Paris in the evening! Intense midnight blue...black...and beams of golden light.
My 'griege' collages of Paris are developing nicely....but I think I'm also going to have to do something 'bleu et noir'.....to remember these superb summer evenings. But more on that in another post.
