A very long walk.

Yesterday, we decided to walk to the Tour Eiffel. It's a very long walk, but it was sunny and seemed a good day to do this. There is a photo exhibit on the Quai Branly that we wanted to see, right by the Tower, so off we went. Here are some images from our walk. Play equipment in the little Square Jean XXIII behind Notre Dame is so different, and the surface beneath it is soft and spongy. Chuck took these photos of the Stained glass window of Notre Dame, the Gold Dome of Les Invalides, and a view of the tower from rue Bosquet. On the way, we wound through lots of streets, stopping into a Monoprix, a Muji by Saint Sulpice, a Mariage Freres tea store, a boulangerie, and Bon Marché.

It turned out that it was chilly in the shade, and windy, and Chuck hadn't dressed with enough layers. Since we weren't in a hurry, it was a nice way to take a long walk.
