Eiffel1.jpg (119312 bytes)

...invaded by Peggy, Karen & Nan
...will it ever be the same?

 

KentDrink2.jpg (179167 bytes)

Our first Kir Royale, a blend of champagne and creme de cassis (black currant liqueur), in the City of Lights, with Kent our Photo Phriend who joined us for a drink after taking our pix...

PereClaude.jpg (133905 bytes)

We were dropped off at Pre Claude's (see far right awning), for the first of many dinners to come.

Orsay.jpg (54659 bytes)

Nan & Peggy in front of the Muse d'Orsay

The long wait at the Orsay was well worth it...

Orsay1.jpg (250219 bytes)

what an incredible collection of art!

Next stop, Versailles, home to many a King Louis, including Louis XIV seen below...

VersLouisXIV.jpg (58581 bytes)

HallMirr3.jpg (100291 bytes)

The Hall of Mirrors was crowded, but just a look upward takes away the pain of fighting the teeming hordes.

Versai2.jpg (65153 bytes)      Hameau1.jpg (72050 bytes)

Symmetry and opulence, grace and excess, including Marie Antoinette's little Hameau, her specially created farm where she played at "pastoral"... all this and more, that's Versailles.

 

 Montmartre.jpg (73613 bytes)

Last stop on our Sunday tour was Montmartre and the Place des Tertres where artists still display and sell their paintings...and people (including us) still buy them.

More Paris pix...
