Le pédaleur

 Young and old pedal around Paris. That ship has sailed for me!

Notre Dame...

is always a good idea. That said, if you're visiting at peak tourist season, consider getting the jump on the queue by arriving at opening hour. This is a church that no visitor wants to miss, but if you have to choose between long hours in line and a very short time in Paris, there are many amazing churches to visit.

La Basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre

The Sacré Coeur should be on everyone's top 10 list for your trip to Paris. Not only is it a beautiful church, but the view of the city of Paris is breathtaking.

Café Nemours

I've spent a lot of time here. We always have lunch at least once. The quiche is light and fluffy. On other days, we flop down in an outside chair and have a glass of wine and watch the world go by at Place Colette, while munching the ridiculously awful nibbles. We dream of the day Nemours offers cacahuètes!

Un peu

In January 2013,  Mary and I arrived in Paris to a lovely dusting of snow. We had a nice lunch first,  and then Peter and I headed straight to Tuileries for photos. Alas, it started raining and it made trekking through the gardens impossible. Dommage.

La vieille porte

Sadly I think they were preparing to paint this beautiful old door. Le progrès.

Beaucoup d'écharpes

Many of you who know me well, will not be surprised to learn that I could probably recreated this with my very own scarf collection!

Un Cour Charmant

Discovered this sweet courtyard wandering the hilly streets of Butte aux Cailles.

Eleven years ago this week, we visited Paris together. One of the most wonderful weeks in my life. Amazingly, even at age 5, Eva still remembers that trip to Paris. Here she rode the carrousel at Tuileries all alone as it was cold and most Parisian children was not in the parks. That trip not only sparked my love of Paris, but also for photography. The rest is history!

Ladurées' tea room on 21 rue Bonaparte is a lovely way to take le petit déjeuner.

La trottinette

Zipping along beside the Jardin du Luxcembourg!

I think Mary and I agree that finding a Métro with an escalator is a fine day in Paris! Our friend Peter Olson, is able to climb Métro stairs all day long. 

Un, deux, trois fenêtres

Always look up. You are never disappointed in Paris.

Paris Rouge - Le manteau rouge

I love this arched walkway, located directly behind the Sénat. I loved her coat as well.

Playing in Paris - La Tour Eiffel, Mumsie!

I don't know if there are sweeter memories of Paris than this day when Eva and Davis visited la Tour Eiffel for the first time. We had a lovely picnic close by and then we discovered this little playground.

Playing in Paris - Follow the Leader

June 2009, we were in Paris along with our Birmingham friends, the Wilson's. This grand afternoon Eva, Davis, Katherine and Ethan had so much fun parading around the Pol Bury Fountain at the Palais Royal. Later, they ran and played in the dirt building a little fairy house in the gardens. A very special time for all of us.

Playing in Paris - Le bac à sable

Yesterday's City Daily Photo's Theme was PLAY. While searching through the files for an appropriate  photo, I found several that I think I'll share for a few days. Y

This petit garçon was having fun digging in the sandbox despite the need for a winter coat in Novemb er. This was taken in the sweet little playground on the grounds of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés church.

City Daily Photo Theme Day - Play

May, 2009. Eva and Davis loving the seesaw outside Cathèdrale Notre Dame. I love these sweet memories.

My City Daily Photo blog friends around the world are posting today. Have a look HERE! t
