Paris, France

After spending four days in London, we took The Chunnel to Paris.
Here are some of the highlights.


Of course we had to see the Eiffel Tower.


The people walking below it look like little specks.


Views of the Seine





The place we stayed was across the street from the Seine.
A short walk and across a bridge and we were at Notre Dame.



We were also within walking distance of The Louvre.
Here you can see the kids and me in front of the pyramid.




The Louvre is not a place for anyone who gets embarrassed easily  : )


Venus de Milo


Here "She" is.


Some rather large paintings can be found there.


This is Leonardo da Vinci's Virgin Of The Rocks.
One of the paintings discussed in The DaVinci Code.




Monet's painting "La Pie"
Named for the black magpie sitting on the fence.


Many beautiful buildings with pretty shutters and flowers.



The Arc de Triomphe




Lots of (expensive) shopping along the Champs Elysees.


Paris at night ~ beautiful!



Thanks so much for joining me on a little tour of Paris.
I hope you enjoyed it .
Have a wonderful Sunday!
