    Gosh, y’all sure eat fancy. I’m going to see the B’ham Barons next week and I guarantee you that my hotdog will not resemble Bernie’s. Congrats, Bernie. Avocado toast, Now I know what it is. Beside toast and avocados, what’s on it. Is it good?

      It was delicious. Had smoked salmon and crème frische. Tomato and lettuce.

    Hi Linda: we saw chairs like the ones you show from Paris here in Mallorca!

    Your courtyard is lovely! What a sweet sanctuary from the hot streets. Glad you are beginning to find your way around your new neighborhood. I’m sure you will discover some hidden charms. Do you suppose that gal being kissed was thinking to herself,”Get off me you big oaf!” 😉

      No, I don’t think so. I surmised that they were newlyweds.

    Linda, I am enjoying your posts and descriptions of your daily adventures in Paris.
    I have a unique question: My daughter-in-law and my granddaughter will be in Paris for a few days next weekend. They would like to go to Monet’s home in Giverny for a day while they are there. Do you have any suggestions on the best way for them to get there on their own: public transportation, hire car, day tour, etc.?
    Hope you and Bernie are both doing well and enjoying your time in Paris.
    Sally U.

      We are going to Giverny on Tuesday! It’s a bit complicated. First train tix from Gare St. Lazare, then either a taxi or shuttle into the little village. Read Tuesday’s blog. They might want to do a day tour.

      Sally, we are going to Giverny tomorrow! It’s a bit complicated and involves a train ride out of Gare St. Lazare, then a shuttle or taxi into the small village. If they are unfamiliar with Paris, I would recommend booking a tour.

    Oh, that avocado toast looks way better than what I’ve had in North Alabama! Even Bernie’ s hot dog looked good! And to have that courtyard to come home to would be nice – a silver lining to your new neighborhood. It certainly looks prettier than the street side of your Paris home. Loved these especially nice cafe’ chairs today. Enjoy your company. I look forward to your 2 weeks together. A bientot! Ann
