We walked from Palais de Chailot to the Eiffel Tower - via the Carousel to join the queue for the elevator to Level 2 ( not too long a wait - only about 20 mins) what a marvel this tower is. Once on Level 2 I decided that right to the top was for me..... so a bit more queuing and up we went..... TOTALLY AMAZING views from up there. It is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall...
Our next day in Paris was Sunday and we were up at 6.00am as we were taking a bus tour to Giverny to visit Claude Monet's gardens and then back to Versailles in the afternoon. It was a beautiful still morning and I captured this amazing shot of the Seine River.
The Monet gardens were amazing. I took so many photos of the flowers as they were so pretty and the pond.... it is exactly like you see in the Monet paintings. Here are just a few of the photos
I have already used a couple to make thank you cards ( see here and here )
After lunch at an amazing old mill we headed to Versailles. The Mill has a wheel that still turns.
Versailles was the one of the highlights of the trip for Peter. He was totally amazed at the opulence of the Palace. The Hall of Mirrors was something special and all the amazing painting, the painted ceilings.... so much to see and then the gardens and fountains.
Next instalment for that one....
Hope you are enjoying my trip. I am so loving choosing the photos to show and reliving again each day. So thanks for stopping by.
