Sunday in Paris

Sunday 6th September 2015

We take the RER into Paris, this time to visit one of the Sunday Markets and, Rive Gauche.

Vegetable buying is quickly followed by a succession of hat trials by Kathleen and Linda.

A stroll through Jardin des Plantes, past the zoo, then coffee, ice cream and a sandwich.

Past Notre Dame

IMGP3312 lingering by the riverside stalls, to buy priceless rare prints of Paris street scenes, who can resist?


Until, eventually, hats are purchased in the Rive Gauche area.

Monday 7th September 2015

Brian and Linda take a trip into Paris, to visit Arc de Triomphe.

We take a day off from the city and go cycling.

We cycle past the Chateau at Maisons Laffitte.

Then across the river to where there is an excellent, mostly traffic free cycle track.

IMGP3318 We go along the Seine approximately 10 miles we think, towards Paris, but, to be honest, the river meanders so much, it is difficult to be sure!




The evening is rounded off with a meal in L'Avenue, Maisons Lafitte, and, very enjoyable too. Our waiter's English is just slightly better than our French, so, much hilarity, but, we all get what we ordered, so, success.
