Paris Sights

The entrance to a small museum at the Sorbonne, The Cluny Musee.
Inside were lovely medieval treasures including the tapestries of the unicorn.
We visited this museum early in the morning, then strolled on to arrive at the Luxembourg Gardens in time for lunch.
It was beautiful, sunny day and many french people were sitting enjoying the day.
We had brought along the baguettes from our breakfast, a little cheese, and an apple; so we sat and enjoyed the lunch time sunshine with a small picnic of our own.
A beautiful fountain found at the gardens.

The leaves were just beginning to turn and the day was spectacular.
In the chateau on the grounds you will now find the French Senate.
Now onto a very special afternoon of chocolate, which I will show you tomorrow.
