We woke up to some unexpected sunshine! The perfect thing to start our first full day together.
We met at the apartment for a tea and macaron tasting and then the skies clouded over as we headed out on our city tour. But our spirits were hardly dampened. We took the metro down to St. Germain and walked from Place de Concorde through the Tuileries to the Louvre. We encountered a bit of a downpour but we barely missed a beat. We put up our hoods and umbrellas and for a few amazing minutes had the square in the Louvre all to ourselves.
We made our way to the E. Dehillerin in search of some treasures and arrived just in time for the chiming of the bells at the St. Eustache Church.
After witnessing a baptism and taking in the amazing light and calm of the church we moved on to enjoy a drink at a local café. Our walk home was followed by a quick freshening up and a re-group for dinner at a local restaurant called Marguerite.
Drinks, dinner and some lovely conversation closed out our second day.
Tomorrow we shop at the Raspail Sunday bio market and cook and eat!
