…...or for joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday - we were up quite late last night - couldn't resist watching the latest episode of 'Line of Duty' which we had recorded - of course this morning we slept in, despite the unpacking, washing and shopping to be done!!!
I am going to start by showing you photos from Sunday, which was Hubby's birthday - he is officially a pensioner now!
We started the day by a visit to the Flea Market we missed last year, we thought it strange that something so widely publicised looked like a market….
….until we saw the sign pointing to the right direction - unfortunately I was so busy looking on the stalls that I forgot to take photos!
From here we caught the tram to Parc Montsouris - you may remember I loved this park the first time we visited in June 2015.
The RER track runs right through the middle of the park
We took different route than last time.
Then it was time for lunch(or rather brunch!)
We caught the Metro to Les Halles and walked up a road to the side.We came across le Compass - offering a very interesting sounding Brunch
I had started eating when I remembered to take a photo - there is also a basket of bread on the table at the left.On our plates - a salmon mixture, which neither of us really liked so it didn't all get eaten, scrambled eggs and bacon, hash brown, brie, caesar salad, fresh fruit salad and a syrup pancake - good job we were doing lots of walking!
The inside was old industrial style..
When we came out there was a small dance troupe
We set off for a walk…just a few of the things we saw on the way.
This was one of my most exciting moments - years ago we used to love being in Paris to watch the Friday night Paris Roller. It seems it now takes place on Sundays too!
Our last destination before heading to the hotel was to find the Vertical Garden - created by Patrick Blanc on Quai Branly - it was more difficult to find than we expected because the road name was misleading!
We finished with a picnic we had bought back in the Mairie sitting on a bench with a view of the sun on the Eiffel Tower!
Hoping you haven't nodded off, as I am …I hope you don't mind if I don't visit until tomorrow!
Thanks for looking, Chris
