    My vote for favorite picture today is Bernie with the pigeons. However, the church windows and intricate wood work is a close second. 15,000 steps! No wonder you and Bernie stay so trim.

    I feel like I’m reliving our visit.

    The windows take your breath away. I can’t imagine the years it took to make them. Beautiful photos!!!

    The stained glass windows are just amazing.

    And what was that down the back of Bernie’s shirt? 🙂

    Bernie, I can see a family resemblance with your relative between the two photos here. Thank you for the musicians a couple of days ago.

    Perfect timing. We just hosted a 2 ½ year old little boy for several days – little boys are insane. I’m sure Isabella will remember her tour of Paris with you and Bernie for a long time. Good going. The stained glass and architecture were about as good as I remember you showing. We just don’t take the time to do stuff like that anymore. Looks like direct sunlight will shine through at least one side all day long. Are those last two pigeons eating macaroons?

      The popular French cookie is called a macaron but is different from our macaroon…no cocoanut. Yes, the pigeons were going after some cookies that had been dropped, we presume. An expensive treat for them.

    Ooooh-la-la! What delightful photos…all catching Parisian life in a wonderful way! I always look forward to “our” annual trip to Paris! Just when you think you’ve seen it all…you capture yet another fabulous nuance of this thriving city!

    Wonderful and love the scavenger hunt finds!

    Can’t wait to read about your day up on the hill. Wonder if Bernie had a cheese plate!?

    Makes me so nostalgic for when my son was your young visitor’s age. Cheers to you all for these precious times.

    The stain glass – incredible art. Love hearing of your 9 year old friend. Her parents should give lessons.
