Good Morning Day 5!
Hello again from House # 1604
I decided not to wear any pink today :-)
Another photo of the girls while waiting for bus #34
Love this morning scene!
Playing in the bus
First stop - Montmartre area.
Walking up steps to Sacré-Cœur Basilica
There was a funicular train (included in our travel pass) but the queue was pretty long so we just walked up. Much to Elyssa's dismay!
Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Taken at basilica steps
In the Basilica
Cobbled walkway near the basilica
There were plenty of artists walking around asking whether we want portraits to be drawn
Nice to just walk around
Us at the Artist Square
This picture looks like its taken from a postcard!
Stopped by for lunch
16 Euros for fixed price lunch of appetizer, main and dessert.
On Erin's right is a bottle of Evian water we accidentally ordered. 8 Euros!!!!! Aaaaarghhhh!
Dessert of Choc Cake and Creme Caramel
Walked around after lunch-
One-two-three greedy stooges :-)
Had my hot Starbucks latte
So American, but what the heck ;-)
Hubby with the small princess
The lady was cutting up a huge salmon
"Le Moulin Blute-Fin"
One of the original windmills left standing out of the original dozen that was built in the early 17th century. Also painted by Van Gogh!
Another shot with the old moulin
And this is the new moulin!
Can't help thinking of Nicole Kidman swinging at the top of the windmill
Hubby at Fontaine Saint-Michel
He wanted a photo since St Michael was the patron saint of his secondary school
Latin Quarter Streets
Next stop was meant to be Luxembourg Gardens
Entrance of Luxembourg Gardens
We were 5 minutes too late! Park closed at 4.30 but we arrived at 4.35pm. Sigh.
So walked over to Panthéon instead
Waiting for train back to Marnee La Vallee Chessy
Interesting day out indeed!
-- End of Day 5--
