|Today is our last day in Paris. We started with a tour of Notre Dame and ended with a nice dinner at Julian. Here are our desserts.|
It rained most of the afternoon, so I took a nice nap!

|This morning we had a 2 hour guided tour of the Montmarte neighborhood. Lots of great old narrow streets full of shops and cafes. We also went up to Sacre Couer to take a few pics of the view out over all of Paris. It stretches out as far as you can see. We didn't get inside, the line was quite long.|
Then we stopped for a snack and did a little shopping before we came home. (Chocolate Crepes)
Later I'm the afternoon we did the hop on/off bus tour which is great on a rainy day. It's nice and warm and dry on the bus.
|Today we went out to Giverney to look at Monet's house and gardens. I took most of my pictures with my regular camera, but here are a couple I took with my phone. It is about an hour drive out of Paris. Very crowded, which I'm told is normal. And it was cold, with a lite drizzle. Great flowers!|
We got back to Paris about 6:30 pm and climbed up the Arc.de Triomphe to take a few pics. 200+ steps, here is looking down the stairwell.
|So tonight we went to Sainte Chapelle for a concert. It was only an hour, but great. Sainte Chapelle is under renovation, but is so beautiful. |
Then we walked back across the river and caught a taxi home. Cold tonight. I think I'll stay in and order room service.
|We are having a wonderful time in Paris. Today is Mary's birthday so we went for a Champagne cruise and then to O Chateau for a wine tasting dinner. The crew at O Chateau are great. Our cruise was delayed 40 min so they offered to come pick us up. There was a music concert going on by the river and cops everywhere. Traffic was horrible, so getting picked up was wonderful.|
And the dinner was great. Excellent food, 4 wines paired with the different courses. And Lionel really knew a lot about wine. It was fun to eat back in the tasting room instead of out in the main restaurant. A good time was had by all!
