Springtime in Paris 1

Le printemps dans le Jardin des Tuileries

Le printemps dans le Jardin des Tuileries

The second full day we were in Paris was a Sunday, and the sun obliged by shining bright and clear. The exhaustion of the travel and the time change had hit me full force, so that I was shaking slightly. But I really didn’t want to miss the beautiful day since weather in France in May can be iffy.

This was the first day that I fully realized how perfect the location of the hotel was. I was able to walk the 15 steps it took to reach the bottom of the street, then be able to cross the street, and be in the Tuileries.

Parisians had turned out in full force due to the beautiful weather on a Sunday, and I had to walk only a short way into the gardens before I was able to find an empty chair. I sat down, and proceeded to spend about 2 hours just watching people and taking pictures. Occasionally I would get up, wander a short way to get a different perspective, find another empty chair, and sit down again. I soaked up the sun, soaked up the beauty and soaked up Paris.

Un trés beaux jour!
