End of the stay!

 Le baguette - we ate many of these. We will not eat another like this for a long time. They are so distinct to this place.
View along the Seine last Sunday, when it was closed to vehicles and people promenaded, bicycled and skated along the route. 
 A group of my Mail Artist friends and I walked all the way to the Louvre and a bit beyond, on Sunday. Here's the Pyramid du Louvre.
 Yesterday, my Honey and I walked to rue du Bac, where we stopped in some galleries and Deyrolle, which some of you may have seen in the movie Midnight in Paris.  We looked in the window at Sennelier. Here are some papers showing their water-colors. The reflection is of the Louvre on the other side of the Seine.
 After a long walk, we took the #70 bus across the river and back to Hotel de Ville.
 The ice skating rink is still up and very well used. The light made the Hotel de Ville look rosy.
 Another view of the lovely old carousel.
These are the last of the pastries, unless we get some at the airport while waiting for our flight. Au revoir pastries, baguettes, Paris.
