    The flower gardens in the park were lovely and the sheds quite whimsical. It would be a delightful painting. I agree that the interior of the church is very austere and certainly not welcoming. If you and Bernie could buy an apartment in Paris, without regard to cost, what arrondissement would be your first choice in which to live?

      Definitely in the 4th in Le Marais. Hopefully near rue St. Paul. We have made so many friends here. There are nicer areas with better views but this spot has our heart. Second choice would be Ile St. Louis along the river.

    I like modern architecture, but that church… not so much! Fun new views, though. Enjoy the cool weather.

    The pews alone would be cause never to attend the church. We wouldn’t survive!
    Envy the cool weather. Thank you for sharing that delightful stroll.

      It was definitely one of our adventures. Half the time, we weren’t sure where we were but Bernie is good at following his instincts. Today, we walked in the wrong direction for 15 minutes until I suddenly saw a sign for the Bois de Bologna. Bernie stopped dead in his tracks and said, “Oops, we need to turn around, retrace our steps and go in the opposite direction. 2-3 miles of walking!!

    I’m with you on the church but your tours are delightful wherever you take us.

    That church is blah…definitely doesn’t compare to the beauty we are used to seeing there. I give it two thumbs down, ha!
