While walking up the almost 400 stairs to the North Tower of Notre-Dame, we spotted a pigeon with babies in one of the windows. You can see the spikes they use to keep pigeons off. It didn't stop this Mommy. How tender she is caring for her babies!!
We spent half a day at the Chateau de Versailles. We have never seen anything so glorious, formal and sumptuous. We also toured the formal gardens that seemed to go on forever with secret areas in the hedges with fabulous statues and fountains. I would love to post all the pictures from this magnificent palace but would run out of room for sure!!!
at 9:32 AM
One evening we took a dinner cruise along the Seine. It went from the base of the Eiffel Tower around the two islands past Notre-Dame and the Louvre and back around past the statue of Liberty and back to the tower. We sipped fine French wine and Kir, had Caviar and a fabulous dinner. There was live entertainment with a wonderful singer. We had the greatest time of our lives!
Yay.....You have no idea how awesome it is to see the Eiffel Tower in person. The first time I saw it I got goosebumps!!!! It is funny when we got into our hotel room we looked out the windows to see if we could see it, and we couldn't. Then I decided to stick my head out a little farther and voila! There it was!!!
