A pictorial diary of our first day in Paris . . .
The Engineer and The Artist, on the plane!
finally what i dream about: hours and hours of uninterrupted stitching time!
i love this view of Earth
and this one
Though it began in a very
stressful adventurous manner, we arrive in Paris on time and even better, so did our luggage!
a heart on the bathroom floor in the Paris airport portends how this trip will unfold and long be remembered
Dear Chantal Baquin meets us at the airport and will spend our time in Paris with us. We are so very lucky to have her!
Chantal’s friend Peter came to drive us from the airport, giving us a tour of the city of Paris on our way. We are lucky to have him, too! Our trip starts with much friendship.
love the chairs in the Paris airport
After leaving the airport, we see . . .
Arc de Triomphe
Arc de Triomphe detail
The Eiffel Tower from afar
The Eiffel Tower up close (It’s much bigger up close!)
The obelisk Napoleon brought from Egypt as a souvenir
A fetching tile mural
The Louvre, old and new
a wall that on the left makes me think of a quilt
a garden (with an available bench!) near Notre Dame where we rested and watched wedding photos being taken
the siene river
It is HOT here in Paris. I glisten all day long. Scroll back up to see my hair at the beginning of the day, now see what it looks like at the end of the day. This, my friends, is the mark of a full and well-enjoyed day!
