Another Monday~'Missing Paris Day'~Le Seine

Shot looking back at Notre Dame near one of our favorite cafes along the Seine on the Ile St. Louis, Le Lutetia (which was Paris' original name dating back to Pre-Roman times). Many a Kir and Chocolat Chaud have been blissfully sipped at one of their outdoor corner tables here rain or shine. Under the eave for protection from the sun or with the outdoor heater over us, only the drink depends on the weather!

Fifi,
I know what you mean. Makes me so want to stroll the lower walkways of the Seine on a balmy summer evening!

Absolutely gorgeous! It would look great in a frame on my wall! So I can stare and daydream about it all day!

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

Thanks Amy and don't forget to read the earlier Sarah Dunant book (Birth of Venus)!
Looking forward to your next book review!

This is a stunning photo! I missed Ile St Louis last weekend in Paris but will have to revisit in September. It's charming. And I'll look for that cafe

Oh my! I'm afraid I've found another beautiful blog, to follow. Not that I need one more. But... What can I do? When I find them, I simply have to toddle along.

Thank you for the lovely photos! And especially the 'Missing Paris' ones.

10 years ago, we had a wonderful 8 days in Paris. Many happy memories. Only one visit, but it's more than I had ever really expected, to be able to make.

I am thinking you've got to publish a book on Blurb called Missing Paris featuring your photos and memories. It would be terrific.
