More From The Weekend

Don’t worry- I promise not to go on any more about our boss seats at the French Open Women’s Finals on Saturday or that you might have seen us on TV sitting right behind Serena. Not another word.

If you come to Paris this summer you shouldn’t miss the Berges de Seine, which I have featured here several times. We love to walk down to this re-vitalized and pedestrianized bank of the river between Pont d’Alma and the Musée d’Orsay. Lucky for us it’s not too far to walk carrying a picnic or just a bottle of wine, as we did on Saturday evening. The sun is not setting here until close to 10:00, which allows plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings, the wine, and the sunset.

Hey- didn’t I see you on TV earlier today?

The Petit Palais was aglow when we passed it on our way home.

Sunday afternoon Mark had to go to the office and I wandered around the Marais a bit. While many parts of Paris are closed on Sundays, the Marais is reliably hopping.

I was reminded that we are well into tourist season here in Paris. The streets were thronged with happy travelers, and the lines for falafel and gelato were staggering.

The Place de Vosges was as crowded as I have ever seen it.

I wandered off a main street and found this quiet spot.

This lovely place, the Hôtel-de-Sens, was built from 1475-1519.

A few other random things caught my eye.

pomengranate juice, anyone?

pomegranate juice, anyone?

And finally, this group had attracted a nice crowd on a shady corner.

Do wop, do wop.

    Your posts make my heart sing! I remain enthralled and inspired by your ability to continue to explore and enjoy Paris like a shiny new toy on Christmas morning. Keep it coming, please! xoxoxo

    • Awwww- your comment made my heart sing! Paris is still shiny and new, in part because I am always looking for views that people at home would enjoy. I’m so glad you are sharing this with me!
