Wordless Wednesday in Paris

Sights on day one:



























Traveling around Europe with my Honey is one of the things I like best about retirement. 
What's delighting you?

  1. So. Is it common to see an unescorted BRIDE in the crosswalks of the City of Paris?

  2. Did you visit the Manet exhibit? He's one of my favorites. Matisse is another.

  3. Well, that elephant is pretty darn exciting. I'm just trying to doctor my sunburned face, hoping it gets better soon. I think it's weird to have gotten so burned without ever seeing the sun!

  6. Lou, Yep, there she was just crossing the street, no cameras, escorts or anything. Pretty wild!
    CG, Manet exhibit tomorrow at the D'Orsay. Yesterday there was a sign on the museum door saying: "We don't know whether or not we'll be open at all today," Huh?
    DJan, Wind burn? Sun burn through the clouds? The elephant is in front of the D'Orsay Museum, one of my favorites.
    Rosaria, The good thing about doing all this at my age is that I absolutely know how fortunate I am and give thanks daily.
    Nancy, Thanks! And she was sooooo beautiful. I just stared but then thought: "I better get a photo to share on my blog since who would believe it anyway." And no one else seemed surprised!

  9. Paris is such a wonderful city. I love it. Is the rose window in Notre Dame?

    Don't forget to go to the Bastille, and stand inside very still, and listen.

  12. Lauren, I really enjoy everything about Paris.

    Krissa, I have no idea, but there she was crossing the street, nonchalant, no one else staring except me, and I whipped out my camera and got this and I think I was the only one!

    Patti, It is the Rose window of Notre Dame. What a place! Bastille will be the next time. And I'll listen.

    Nanny, I did some of that. The women are beautiful and the men are beautiful and they dress so nicely. Sigh. Paris.

    Pat, Truly.

    Linda, It's fun to be doing this as an elder for the first time. I'm just loving it and having a ball and feeling so grateful.

  13. Oh, I'm fantasizing, walking on those Parisian streets too, sitting at those bistros, sipping a cafe and watching brides walk down a busy street. Oui, la belle vie!

  17. I'm very 'homesick' for Paris.

    Maybe one day I can go back with my daughter and grandchild. ;)

  18. Ruth, That's a great idea. Paris is amazing. Share with them what you love. I'm planning a trip with my daughter and grands to Nova Scotia where my mother was from and Prince Edward Island where my grandmother was from.
