    You two are deserving of that nice long rest as you went above and beyond hosting Natalie, Carson, and Emily! Reading about your journey on their last day made my feet hurt! I hope Bernie enjoyed the finish of La Tour on Sunday. Your new outfit is very chic and looks great on you! Love the idea of the “beach” in Paris.

      Oh-là-là, I totally forgot to mention that we didn’t get to see the Le Tour de France. There was a miscommunication between Bernie and the security guard on Avenue George Cinq. He thought the man told him that everything was closed to spectators. Actually, just the spot where we were was closed off. We could have walked up about two blocks and gotten in. We watched with dismay on our television at all the cheering crowd. We have been many times before and I will post some of the older pics I have in my photo repertoire.

    We missed you, but were happy that you got some time to recover. Believe me, we understand getting tired more easily! For each day of activity or company, it takes us a full day to recover. We always love the photographs and the interesting things you teach us about Paris. Thanks for sharing!

    Love your new outfit! It’s good to see your photo sporting a lovely new outfit and a rested you. Laundry is always a challenge in your circumstances but happily rain held off. Photos of Parisian buildings and people enjoying life are always fun to view.

    Wonderful that you are back to your usual routine, even with all the laundry! I hope the beautiful weather holds for you and for us when we get there!

    The new outfit is definitely you. Love it. I might borrow it one day?😏
    I clocked 12,000 steps yesterday. Would have been more, but had to postpone a waterfall trek. Drizzle and clouds today- our first. Good day to launder and rest, as you wisely do.
    Love those evening strolls.

    Hope you two find lots of time to cruise the river or lay on the beach.

    My first encounter with one of those toilets was in a flat in Linz, Austria. The two ladies I was a guest of had driven out into the countryside to visit relatives, so I’d received no warning. Those things would flush a stump. Even more surprising was the kitchen sink, with its on-demand water heater, which fired into action with a loud “swoosh.” I got to meet the owner of the flat, Herr Doktor Schönfelder, who had a new house on the mountain overlooking the city. Years later, I saw a Vanagon in, of all places, Cades Cove in the Smokys with an Austrian sticker and wandered over to introduce myself. The owner was shocked. They were from Linz and the good doktor had been his geography prof. At the time, we had a German exchange student. Witnessing this, he became even more convinced we knew everyone on Earth. On dogs in restaurants, my daughter and her husband keep their Great Dane in their restaurant in Pralognan la Vanoise…

      Earl, isn’t travel wonderful? It’s most definitely a small world and getting smaller.
