It may have been a bit breezy as we left the Musee D'Orsay but the sky was a bright blue and the sun was shining.
A perfect day to enjoy some time on the water. Just across the street from the museum we went down some stairs where there was a ticket booth on the right where we purchased tickets for a boat ride...a hop on-hop off kind of boat. I think this may have been Sweetie's favorite part about our Paris trip...well, besides the croissants...and I enjoyed it a lot, too.
You get a completely different impression of the city from the water, with bridges crossing overhead and with other boats pulled up at the banks.
We crossed the street to a cafe for some lunch and it was very peaceful.
Sweetie had a little time to study the travel book I was hauling around. I thought it might help make Notre Dame and St. Chappelle more interesting to know a little about them before we got to them. I was enjoying the people strolling outside, both near the cafe and near the river.
Next up will be some photos of Notre Dame and St. Chapelle and I'll tell you about Tony. Next time.
