Glorious weather graced our day with hardly a cloud in the sky and 70 degrees as the high. I’d call that about perfect unless you have vertigo and then, darn, it’s not as much fun. Bless Bernie for always holding my hand and telling me that everything will get better. Maybe home is where I need to be but onward we go.
After a slow morning, we ventured out for a stroll along Les Champs Elysées, the most famous avenue probably in all of Europe. Though it’s not what it used to be, it is still a must-do promenade when you’re in Paris. There was a very nice change: the addition of greenery all around each tree, most likely in preparation for the Olympics.
We continued our search for pink which is truly everywhere once you start looking. Our intent was to say Hello to our friend Benjamin who works at the Café George Cinq. He was on vacation so we’ll have to try again. We also went to the huge Apple Store to investigate some charges on my Wallet app which uses Apple Pay. They knew nothing about how to dig into this but were able to remove my credit card from the app. Whoever might be trying to make fraudulent charges with it will be disappointed.
Come along and enjoy the sights; the sounds will have to wait until you visit!
Dinner was at Carette in La Place des Vosges. We sat in a favorite little niche which is half inside, half outside. It gave the perfect ambiance for our joie de vivre photo. The quintessential capture of the Parisian spirit undoubtedly is the background from a bustling café.
About 2:30 today, we’ll greet my daughter and grandson and then the fun really begins!
