Loisir


Place des Vosges

The French have perfected leasure time.  I've never had the nerve to just kick off my shoes and stretch out in the grass, but I've thought about it!

They are all enjoying themselves and what better place than a park in the sun.

I used to sit on the grass in that exact spot while cramming for exams with my student friends! Thank you for the memories :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

A very relaxing atmosphere !

Diane said...

I've sat there! Love the music - just wish I was there this morning. xxx

Alexa said...

I've sat there too—the first time I was a teenager and the last was last year, with my 30-something daughters! You make me want to go back to this special spot right now, V—

I'm afraid if I tried that I wouldn't be able to get back up! HA Oh to be young again and wiggle my toes in the grass. :)

Recently I visited Paris and this app helped me out so good in Paris, you should check this out! Its an offline Metro RER map so I saved pretty much on Taxi and got lotta info on Tourist Places! And its really a cheap app too!!!

A break in the grass of Place des Vosges is on my to-do-list for many years.

What a great photo for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Love how the sun is bouncing off the buildings.

Tell me why it takes nerve to kick off your shoes and relax on the grass, missy. I don't follow.

Joe said...

Hi V .. How lovely to laze around on the grass in the sunshine. Great shots. J.

I did stretch out one time on the lawn at Petit Palais with Holly and John but we got some quizzical looks... I did not know that "lawn sitting" was generally not allowed - hah! I know now how to choose wisely.

hee hee...
«Louis» immediately recognized this as Place des Vosges. He hasn't mastered that French art of relaxation, either....

I'm so doing this the next time I'm in Paris Virginia, even if I have to roll over and get myself up that way haha! the way my knee is behaving at the moment that's exactly how it would be!!

Jeanie said...

One of my favorite spaces! Lovely to be there at this time of year, I should think!

Peter Olson said...

We are expecting a heat wave this week. If you would have been around, I'm sure you would have kicked off your shoes here! :-)

Virginia said...

Peter, well considering how you walk my feet off, I will have to do this next time. You'll have to help me up!
