This sign..tugged at my heartstrings..my mom did not get to know Jacques for very long..maybe 6 months..if that...
Jacques took my mom and I out for dinner..at La Crepe Bretonne in Montréal..the one on Mountain St..in 1973~
I was 19..I was filled w/ pride that Jacques knew of this restaurant and I could see my mom..was so grateful ..
she was smitten..he took her back to his apt w/ me..I could tell my mom..liked him a lot..and I am glad that stayed with me..as she passed away shortly after..I knew I had her stamp of approval..
She has my trolley..kidding the trolley I wish I had bought in Provence~8 years ago..
I love olive trees..small..medium and large..young..or old..
If not for Carol G..I wonder if I would have noticed..
Love the corner buildings~
Charming..I think I am into charm.
The views from those apartments ..!
Ball games strictly prohibited~
The banks of La Seine were receding..the bateaux-mouches were back in business..mud was under foot and couragoeus restaurateurs were working hard to restore what was there before....I was happy to see that on the eve of our departure,things were getting back to normal.
We were able to walk on the banks of La Seine the day before we left..the clouds rolled in..on that last day..
A ship had docked
The car in back was just as close.. they BUMP..forward and backward to get out..couldn't believe it..
I would cry if I found my car squeezed in like that as I would never get out.
Heading towards our place for the last time~
And then home~
♥That face :) And his poster..and flowers..
The best photo.
I took 1000 photos in Paris..
You never set up and shoot..you walk and click..w/ out stopping almost.
Grateful to Arlene to have sold me her Point And Shoot Sony that I brought along..small battery charger..and it fit in my purse.
Paris is a photographer's dream.
An adventure we will never forget~
I found out..upon our return..a couple of weeks into it..that a blogger/artist I enjoy and follow..has a little gem for rent in Montmartre,should I go back..I would be very tempted..no..I would..I just would:)
You can see her views form her rental apt..here..
I have seen the apt..so cute and clean and new..I saw it on photos..you can contact her directly through her blog.
I find the look..location...look very very good!
A few of my souvenirs..we did not shop much..the surprise of the first days and wondering what was to come..but everywhere we went..I loved gathering.:)
The card upper left w/ La Tour Eiffel..from one of our daughters ..before we left to tuck into my purse..♥
Our infamous Metro pass..photo turned over;)
And that's it...
Except..thanks to all my favorite bloggers that instilled the desire in me to GO:)
