    What a wonderful set of photos! A little down time to just roam around and window shop is a good way to spend a Saturday. Bernie did a very good job on his first selfie!

    Darn, you cut off the picture just before the price of the macarons! Im curious how much they are now in Paris… In NYC at Laduree, they were $3.50 last time I was in there… And in NYC, they range from $2.50-$4.25 depending on the place, Or at least those were the prices last time I looked! I paid 3.00 at the Quatorze Juillet fête in July, where four-five streets along Madison Avenue were closed and various French producers had booths. ( including Thermomix, a VERRRRRy expensive food processor)

    Paris is looking good. Its time for me to go, hopefully Sept/October!
    Amusez -vous bien.

      Prices for macarons are similar here. But I never buy just one.

    I’ve actually been enjoying the fake floral facades, but, you’re right, this one was too, too much. Poorly arranged, for one thing. But desserts! Yum!

    Your pictures and your post have a sense of relaxation, exploration and frivolity. Tell Bernie he did a good job on his first selfie.

    What a delightful day. So happy for cooler temps. Same here in AL. And such luscious food photos. Beautiful church and wedding – there’s nothing like stumbling on a wedding to lift one’s spirits!

    The cat painted on the wall was cool, some folks really have an imagination. Try Chik fil A for the name of the Japanese restaurant. At least that’s the way the lines look on all between here and the Gulf coast.

    HA! I paid 3.00 a piece but didnt mean to suggest I only bought one! if I could buy one at a time, Id be happy. But I love them and that is not possible!! . I have stopped walking by 70 on Madison Avenue though, That brings me right past Laduree… And as long as I dont pass Laduree, I dont buy them! if I pass, all is over! They are good arent they!!
