Exploring Another Roof Top and Some Fall Fashion
So yes, we’ve become slightly obsessed with roof tops which is something we haven’t pursued that much in the past.
Our journey in today’s blog is to the very lovely department store, Au Printemps, meaning spring as in spring of the year. First a little fashion and then the rooftop on the second-to-last floor. There is another restaurant above it which requires reservations. Perhaps another day.
Bernie’s mojito was only 16 euros so what a bargain! It was very hot up on the roof, close to 88 degrees. So yes, it’s summer in September even though we were supposed to be experiencing Spring??
Dinner was a familiar treat at a tiny but delightful small restaurant on Ile St. Louis called Sorza. We have become friends with the patron, and she is one of the best as far as service is concerned. She does it all except the cooking.
The stroll home was at twilight which is happening about 8:30 now. Always, always my favorite time of the day in Paris.
Our door of the day was on the island next to where we sat for dinner.
Our terrific news of the day was an email from Bernie’s cousins saying that they are indeed coming for a visit on September 14! We are elated and can’t wait to see them. Oh, the memories we have shared together all over Europe through the years, not just Paris but also London, Berlin and Norway. They are coming by train and we’ll be there to greet them with smiles and hugs.

Love the photos of the food, the river, and the rooftop cafe’. Thanks for sharing your trip!

So glad the cousins are able to come! Hope the visit is perfect. The fashions are lovely but I think you would need to be 6 feet and weigh 110 pounds to pull them off!

Tis true! It’s why I have a hard time shopping here. It’s overwhelming aside from the prices.

Lovely rooftops, lovely evening walk home, lovely escargot and other fish dishes. Yum. I admire the little plaid short skirt outfits and the camel coat, but definitely not a fan of the glorified sweatsuits. Keep enjoying and sharing with us at home!

Love the fashion photos and Au Printemps! . Indeed pricey, however so much fun to wistfully window shop. If you’re enjoying roof tops wait until you get home, there all over downtown.
Your dinner looked delicious. I’m glad you found such a lovely place close to your apartment.
Great news about Bernie’s cousins coming for a visit. I know you will both enjoy your time with them.

Which of the fashions did you like best?

The first storefront window. However, these tall, sleek mannequin models have the perfect fashion bodies. Not so, for most of the rest of us!
