Paris and home

Can't believe it has been over a week since I last posted something onto "Peaceful Threads" .... we had an amazing few days in Paris before heading home ... we are now home and slightly jet lagged which explains why I would be blogging at 5am our time !!    After the peace and tranquility of the Loire Valley, it was great to arrive in Paris and look out our hotel window to see the Arc de Triomphe!


The beautiful buildings of Paris are spectacular ...


We walked for miles and miles ....


Early one morning we walked all the way to Montmartre and around the Sacre Coeur .... not a soul around at 7.30am !


Such a spectacular building ...


Our typical French breakfast ...


The view from our Eiffel Tower lunch ...


This never ceases to amaze ...


They do flags and gold well in France ...



Wandering along the Seine ....


It was about 36 years ago that we stood in this same spot in front of Notre Dame Cathedral !  We look a little older than we did then !!



The gardens and parks are beautiful ... and the sun was shining most of the time !


We enjoyed wandering and eating and then more wandering to walk off the eating !


We were in Paris for a friends 60th birthday ... will need to download those photos to share another time !
