For now I will show you a few photos of how we spent our Sunday in Paris.
We started out with a walk up through the market to Place d'Italie.
I wanted to buy my Granddaughter some thing and usually go to Zara in the Shopping Centre there.
We also stopped at Paul's for coffee and for a sandwich for our 'picnic'
Of course it is here where I will join Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday!
It was delicious coffee and we resisted the cake display...but I did wipe out my cup and it is now holding pencils on my desk!
We went on the metro and as we changed lines saw these
We ate our sandwich by the Petit Palais
Although I was initially disappointed that it wasn't in the main hall we thoroughly enjoyed it!
I did try to add photos here but blogger has started to play games again so I will try with taking you away from the Grand Palais.
We headed over the Alexander Bridge the most ornate in Paris.
It leads to Les Invalides....the resting place of Napoleon.
Before crossing the bridge we went to look at the statue of another famous soldier - Winston Churchill.
Here you can see the Grand Palais on the left and Petit Palais on the rightWe walked around the side of Les Invalides and into familiar territory - we used to stay at a hotel close by for quite a few years.
We stopped to look at the Eiffel Tower again....
...from the gardens this time.
On the way I spotted this beautiful flower display outside a florists shop
We headed to the metro that took us straight back to Place d'Italie where had our evening meal!
I do have a few random photos still to show that I will fit in where I can!
Thanks for looking, Chris
