    Absolutely marvelous idea! The perfect thing to do on a sunny day in Paris! Is that a little dog peeking out of the biker’s bag?

    When we were in Amsterdam in December 2019, we learned too late about the “Intimate Audrey” exhibit created by her son to celebrate her 90th birthday and missed it. if you are interested.

    Thank you, again, for the wonderful photos!

      Yes, it’s a tiny little dog! It’s amazing that I noticed in time to get the photo! Thanks for your always kind comments.

    Though we know the Audrey Hepburn version is the classic, we love the remake of “Sabrina” (with Harrison Ford as Linus). And last night we watched Meg Ryan’s “French Kiss,” which has so many glimpses of the Eiffel tower and the French countryside. We’re with you in spirit and enjoying all the photographs and descriptions!

    Love your spirit for this unique day Linda and Bernie! Oh the things you can do when you have more time in Paris. Have watched Lupin and like it very much. Will enjoy Sabrina one evening soon! Thanks and enjoy every minute.

    You felt about as I did experiencing lunch and after lunch cocktail at The Grand Hotel on Mackinac. Wasn’t quite as tres cher , though. But still beyond our meager means. A once in a lifetime visit. I never knew the Raphael was so close to our hotel there. What a delightful day!

    I am sure you and Bernie fit in perfectly in that swanky spot! Hope the mojitos were good. What a cute little puppy! Good photo catch.

    I truly enjoyed your post today. It blends a little Hollywood and a story of a classy dame. The Raphael was luxurious and I’m happy to have been able to view photos of it. I’m glad splurged and stayed around for a bit. Good picture of you, Linda.

    I loved that movie. You look like you belong there and would have added another layer of elegance to the movie. Always appreciate your posts.
