    We were worrying about you being hot, but it turned out so well. Between the gorgeous windows in Natalie’s pictures and the gorgeous fireworks, your celebrations were shared with us, too.

    From your photos and descriptions it looks as if your day was as close to perfection as possible. Truly enjoyed the photos and all your happy faces.

    Looks like just a fantastic day all around! Is the new apartment location growing on you at all?

      Yes, I think so. We’re learning more and more about how to get around and where things are. Richard Nahem and Victor were here this evening and told us about a lot of good restaurants. We’ve been so busy, we haven’t had much time to catch our breaths. The quickest way to the area we know is by bus if we don’t have to wait very long. Natalie and Lisa are off to DisneyLand Paris tomorrow so we will have some time to rest. They have been very enjoyable. We’re both just showing our age a bit.

    Where did you view the fireworks from? Looks like a great view! We usually go to Place de la Concorde but it looks like your spot is closer. We find Place de la Concord is good because you can make an easy exit and duck into the metro before the crowds from around the Eiffel Tower leave.

    Duh, you were on the river cruise. LOL. I would have deleted the comment, but it wouldn’t let me. We will definitely have to try a cruise next time to watch the fireworks.

    Thanks for sharing.
    That pastry looked like an eclair which I love. Made me hungry for one.
    Wonderful view of the parade!

    Really enjoyed your pics! We showed our age big time on the DC trip in June. Tired so easily. Enjoy. Your little bit of respite tomorrow. That pic of you and Bernie is priceless!

    Your girls are having such fun, they may decide to stay longer. Glad the weather turned pleasant. Hot weather is definitely tiring.

    Those flyover pics are phenomenal! Are they thanks to Bernie’s trusty camera or some other source? Glad you had such a nice day.
