When today dawned bright and beautiful, I knew we had to take advantage of it. Yes, it was cold, but the light was gorgeous and I wanted to soak it all up. So we took off in the direction of Montparnasse. We really had never explored this area, with the exception of an inadvertent detour once when I got hopelessly lost on my bike. Anyway, our route took us through the Luxembourg Gardens where, apparently, all of Paris was out for a run. Yes, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Parisians run. They’re not all skinny because they sit around smoking all the time. Anyway, back to our lovely morning.
For some reason today my attention was drawn to all the beautiful building façades. So, I snapped lots of pictures of them. Here’s my favorites.
And, of course, the Senat at Luxembourg.
And for Bethy, had to take a picture of these when we passed a lovely flower shop. More tulips!
And soon we were in line for the Tour Montparnasse! I can’t wait to share the pictures because seeing Paris from 200 metres is amazing. But I am going to put them all in another entry for tomorrow. See you then!
