Our second day in Paris did not bring any better weather, so umbrella in hand again, we started on the left bank, and with the recommendation of my uncle, stopped in to visit Shakespeare & Co.
If any 'starving writer' didn't have a home, they were welcome to stay at the bookshop and sleep under the stairs for as long as they continued to write.....stop writing, and out you go!
Time for lunch......found a lovely little Bistro just next door, so in typical French fashion, we sat outside under an awning, heated by an overhead lamp....all very cozy.
Great deal for lunch.....a main and glass of wine for 14 euros....perfect
|curried chicken tagliatelle|
|duck confit with roasted potatoes|
Needless to say, it was time to work off our meal, so we headed to the 'Right Bank', passing Notre Dame, to visit the Marais quarter.
I was enthralled by the architecture.....so typical of Paris...
Even the boutiques had fabulous displays
Our last stop was the Place des Voges
|The locks span the complete railing of the bridge!|
full circle to "where it all started".
A little family time coming up.....
