Walks in Paris


Finally back in Paris, we took our first walk today in the area across the Champ de Mars park from our 15th arrondissement neighborhood.



We walked a couple of our favorites: Rue St. Dominique
and Rue de Grenelle,

eyeing luscious cheeses...




and quaint boulangeries...





Adding a little haute couture,
And landscape art.

We took in a few small, religious gems...


and prayed to the Gods of Italian cooking.


Walking a street we've traversed a hundred times,
we spotted an old clock tower never before seen
and in trying to determine it's exact location from the street,
happened upon this lovely little courtyard.



Tomorrow brings more walks, food and family.
And all the joys of Paris.
Time to sleep!
