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.

I'm really enjoying your photos. The buildings are so beautiful and I can't believe the fantastic stonework on the fountain. It was funny to see palm trees in the gardens - that was a picnic to treasure.

All these past few pages have been such an enjoyment. Especially with all the descriotions. Thank you for sharing- some of us will never get to travel there, so it is twice the delight getting the inside scoop! LOL!

I've wanted to visit Paris for many years! Thank you for taking me along with you - I enjoyed 'sitting' by the fountain today.
