Hello everyone. Sorry for absence but some ******* tried to hack my PC thru the hotel Wifi so I shut it down. Paris was very grey - buildings and clouds - but dry. No flooding experienced except the Seine itself with all its usual pedestrian access banks well below water with lamp posts up to their neck in it - look between the tree and the wall to the left.
We didn't go in the Louvre but took this pic from its "gardens" through the arch to the ferris wheel at the Place de la Concorde and up the Champs Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe
We saved the Eiffel tower for after dark. As you can see, no boats about to fit under the bridges so all river traffic halted except for the odd low-rise rubber police launch and swan.........
We were staying near here
We walked a lot. Possum's new fitness dooberry said 18,500 steps in Sunday, 24,600 on Monday and 22,500 on Tuesday, by which time my feet, newly free of arthritic pains thanks to Joyce and the curcuma, felt like every bone had been re-arranged. Fine this morning tho and very pleased to be home with ecstatic doggies, cuddly pussies, happy OH and the pond even fuller than when I left.
Happy belated birthday Dove. Welcome home Hosta and hope you warm up soon. I am looking forward to a good sleep too as our hotel was on a small 5 way junction with bars and restaurants on 4 of them and people sat outside chatting and socialising till the small hours. Does none of them have a normal job?
Too much to catch up on and comment so I'll just say Hi and hope you are well to everyone. Sweet dreams.
