Chairs, Colors, Churches, & Chateaus

Arriving in Paris, we took a walk to acclimate.
I love chairs and this setting was sitting outside a lingerie shop.
Oh, the colors from a pastry shop window.
Sunset over the Seine River.

And churches galore. This is the Notre Dame.

As I sit at my desk this morning, still slightly jet lagged and sipping a premium Yunnan tea from the Mariage Freres; I am overwhelmed with the beauty of my first peeks of the 1500 pictures that came home with me. The letter "C" described in the words above is prevalent in describing our trip. Their were indeed chairs, colors, churches, chateaus, and even caves, candy, and cats. It is difficult to know where to begin to share with you. You were all in my thoughts as I traveled along, snapping pictures; so I hope you enjoy for the next few weeks travels in France and a touch of Barcelona.

For the tea lovers here, I did bring home several lovely teas. The one this morning is called Aigilles D'Or, translated Needles of Gold. Isn't that a lovely name?
