We're just back from two weeks in France, mainly in Bordeaux, but with a few days in Paris at the end of the trip. And since our flight got into Paris at 8:20 in the morning, we were at our hotel by nine....and our room wouldn't be ready until 1 p.m. or so.

What to do? We'll, we had on some walking shoes, so that's what we did.

The view from the bridge of the Seine on the way to Ile de la Cite



St. Chapelle, which has stunning stained glass.


There were "wildflowers" at the flower market


And wildlife as well--like this pigeon nesting in the Virgin Mary's crown on Notre Dame



You never see these guys in the Sierra...


Inside Notre Dame


Nice food shops


And fabulous fruit


Lunch in a little Corsican restaurant near the Place des Vosges


Something yummy for dessert?



And back to our hotel---that's it at the end of this lovely old historic "Passage" from the early 1800s...

All in all, not a bad hike. And we did it with an ultralight daypack...just to keep in style!

The rest of the photos....captions to come soon...are here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/YhN2CD1SU4CP1XSO2

Crepes with Nutella and banana was a hit with our family last spring when we were in Paris.
