Walking, walking, and more walking

Paris is a city you have to walk in to really experience it. I just forgot the amount of walking that it requires. Probably 5 miles a day or more. How many of us walk that much in a normal day? Today we took a boat ride on the Seine so our feet got a small break.

A view of Notre Dame from the Seine. Ever the PMC'er...there is some amazing texture on the walls that direct the flow of the Seine....if only I had some molding compound.

The Conciergerie is where Marie Antoinette spent her last 2 months before her execution. I love the turrets.

The oldest house in Paris is right in the middle of this picture. The yellowish building with the Tudor slats on it. Dates back to the 14th century. The rest of the day we spent walking around the right bank. For a change we are not going out tonight. We picked up food to bring back to the apartment. My feet need a break.

One last pic....We were in BHV, a department store that has basically a home depot in the basement and found this leather tool box just perfect for my Fretz hammers. They also had them in lime green, bright yellow, and hot pink. Only in Paris!!

Au Revoir Bye-Bye...
