The forecast said fine in the morning.....with an evening thunder storm.
I knew exactly what Pierre and I had to do......take the Metro fast and bolt to La Grande Roue....then a long, leisurely stroll along the Seine and a reward of chocolat chaud (before the storm hit!)
I didn't want to waste a minute of that sunshiney, blue sky!
|Just outside Saint-Georges Metro...|
too adorable not to photograph.
|There she is!|
|La Grande Roue...stairway to heaven!|
|The fabulous Grand Palais framed|
by our little carriage.
|Le jogging in Tuileries.|
|Sacré-Coeur on the top of Montmartre...way in the distance.|
|At the top now!|
|There's Jeu de Paume and rue de Rivoli down there.|
|And the Christmas chalets all the way|
along Champs-Elysées. They'll be
sipping mulled wine down there!
|Merci beaucoup Santa....the ride on La Grande Roue was trés, trés bon!|
|And now...for that long, leisurely promenade along the Seine.|
|Went into a bookshop the other day and the owner said,|
"Un chapeau Mongolian Madame!" I knew that!
|Winter in Paris...very cold but definitely trés belle.|
|Segway...a perfect way to get around...but peut-etre not for moi!|
|Parfait, n'est-ce pas?|
|Who's that gorgeous Frenchman smiling at moi?|
|The sun was out so the bouquinistes were out in force too...|
couldn't resist these 1 euro carte postale (again)!
|Lovely little Place Dauphine was totally deserted...|
got lost inside the pine Christmas trees...
their parfum was délicieux.
|You lookin' at moi! (Sorry!)|
|Saw lots of this....there'll be lots|
more carried home this weekend too.
|Across the garden at the back|
then over Pont Louis-Philippe...
I really needed that chocolat chaud.
|At last....Le Flore en L'Ile...a silver jug of rich creamy hot chocolate|
and another jug of steaming frothy milk awaits....heaven!
|The weatherman got it right.....|
P.S. Off to London next week....Pierre's desperate for his Christmas pork pie!
