    Fab photos! One of the reasons I love Paris this time of year is the City of Light lights up earlier 🙂

    Hope you enjoy this evening on the Champs (maybe dinner & view at Renault!?which is now on our list for a Champs respite thanks to you!).

    Yay for the sunshine and merci for your fun posts. LOVE your blog 💟

      Absolutely, it’s really lovely. Reminds me of La Fermette Marbeuf before it closed.

    Would love to have been with you on that walk even though I can’t keep up with you two. In one picture, Bernie looks like a true street photographer.

      Funny that you should make that comment, Charles. He was called down at the big canopy by someone who mistook him for a true photographer. Said he had to have permission! Thank goodness, he had already gotten the big Christmas tree in all of its various iterations.

        Neat. I could tell he has the air of a serious photographer these day. No more laid back “snap-shooting.” This is art!

    Beautiful, Linda! The picture of the grille work at the old Les Halles is the way it was when I first visited the market there.

      Yes, and I loved it! It took them at least five years to put up this new monstrosity, maybe longer. I don’t like it!!

    Yes, wish we’d been there, too. Love to walk off a meal.
    Absolutely in love with Paris at Christmas. Our Christkindlmarket will be on the square this year, closest to what I’m seeing your pics. It’s the weekend you return.

    This is a lovely post! So glad Les Halles is decorated for the holidays! We must try that restaurant. It looks like a beautiful example of Art Nouveau decorations and architecture.
