Paris Day Two

First off......sorry for saying day two was just around the corner and then taking so long to come up with the goods!!!

What can I say?....I have just not felt like sitting in front of a computer screen much!!! Anyway........there are quite a few pics here today to make up for it ;) LOL

Day two dawned and we had a plan to do the Musee d'Orsay so we walked to the Pigalle metro.

Alighted at the Place de la Concord

...can you believe how little traffic there is!?

Then onto the Tuilleries gardens.

...Loved those large planters

A cafe stop with a waiter who could not be anything else but French! ;)

Plenty of chairs to sit and dream if you wanted to.

Loved this!

Did not love the massive cues snaking round the entrance to the Musee d'Orsay so found out you can get a pre booked ticket from Virgin and decided to do the d'Orsay another day.
Headed off back the other side of the river and walked along the Seine.....bliss.
Plenty of houseboats with views of the Tour Eiffel (how fab).

.....one even had it's own retro car on board.

Revisited the Tuilleries and had a panini for lunch....very tasty too.

Then off we walk up the Champs Elysees stopping to window shop and actually going in the biggest dedicated perfume/cosmetic store I've ever seen! Bit on the pricey side though and I forgot to take a picture!!!

One of my reasons for walking up the Champs Elysees was to see this ;)

...and of course this!

I found the car show rooms fascinating...they even have their own mini museums and/or cafe inside!!

...they are usually relegated to trading estates here and don't come with a cafe! LOL

Loved this

....and this

...and this

Join me again for the rest of day two coming soon. ;)
