Out and About in Paris – Part 1

Okay, you know the drill. This is where I get to post all of those fun odds and ends of photos I take everywhere. Those weird little photos that aren’t enough to make a post of but too fun not to share. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Okay, I’ve been brushing up on my French. I’m calling this one “Le Rental Bicycle en Le Seine.” I wonder how they explained this to the rental agent?

 

Isn’t this exactly what I’ve been trying to tell you? Like forever?

 

Oh those Parisians have such a sense of humor! Actually I think I kinda like it.

 

 

Bocce Ball – a popular pasttime among young men.

 

In the Tuileries, the gardens that extend from the Louvre to the Place de la Concorde, goats keep the grass “mowed” in the gullies where lawn mowers aren’t efficient.

 

Equestrian police guard the Tuileries gardens. They also patrol the mostly-pedestrian street in front of our hotel. You frequently hear them go clip-clopping by and it reminds you to watch where you step later on.

 

So what’s more appropriate than a brass band along the Seine on Labor Day. But what’s with his Santa hat?

 

We saw this big group of local walkers with walking poles near the Seine. I wonder if they’re hoping for snow?

 

I love these crocheted balls that appeared to float near the ceiling of this little boutique near our hotel. They certainly are an attention-grabber.

 

Don’t you just love this street in our neighborhood? It’s 4 p.m. Where IS everybody?

 

Isn’t this line of pre-school ducklings and their mother-duck teachers just adorable?

One thought on “Out and About in Paris – Part 1

  1. love the tidbits! Can you imagine having public urinals in the US? We have need for them in our small town. As for the empty street at 4pm… what the heck???
