Here are a few more photos of my recent trip to Paris. Six lovely days all spent in Paris with the exception of one quick day trip to Versailles.

Saint Joan of Arc. I remember writing a book report about this brave young woman when I was in the 5th grade.

A beautiful fountain smack-dab in the middle of a Paris intersection.

Versailles is a bit overdone for my taste, so this interior walkway was a nice rest for the eye.

The Musee Jacquemart Andre was a favorite sight. It is the 19th residence of a weatlhy, art-collecting couple. It was spectacular.

After touring the Jacquemart Andre Museum we walked down Haussmann Boulevard and turned up rue Rembrandt--a gorgeous residential neighborhood.

Rue Rembrandt ended at the entrance of one of the prettiest parks I've seen, Parc Monceau. The temperature was perfect, the sky bright, no dark clouds looming so Parisians were out and about in full force.

A meeting of French Girl Guides, lots of families, runners, and couples taking walks.

So many flower markets. Long-stemmed tulips for 10 Euros!

After dark, at the top of the hour the Eiffel Tower is lit with twinkling lights for the first five minutes. Magical.
