Last Day in Paris

by 94025 April. 12, 2009 1548 views

On our last day we visited the Musee d'Orsay, the pyramid entrance to the Louvre, made a return visit to the Eiffel Tower, had dinner, then packed for the flight home.

Morning treats!

“Our” neighborhood!

d'Orsay

The d'Orsay has a wonderful collection of art nouveau furniture and artifacts. Sydney and Linda are looking at a stained glass window.

The view from the d'Orsay's terrace – Sydney took this picture of a boat on the Seine.

The old train clock at the d'Orsay

It really was a train station!

While we were walking from the d'Orsay to the Louvre an organized roller blade ride came by — complete with a police escort front and back.

The proverbial artist on the Seine!

The pyramid entrance to the Louvre.

Sydney's favorite Parisian snack – a street crepe!

One last look at the Eiffel tower.

Sydney continued to be intrigued with the pigeons!

We expected the Eiffel Tower to be tall but did not expect it to be so big and wide!

Sydney “discovered” another pigeon.

There were two pillars that were open the night we visited. It was dark and hard to read the signs. We had a fifty-fifty chance and “won” the stairs pillar! The lines were short but still long enough that we didn't want to switch to the one with the elevator – so to Sydney's delight we walked up to the second leve on Friday nightl.

We had our last dinner at a little restaurant between the Eiffel Tower and our apartment.

It was Easter Sunday and the restaurant had baskets of died eggs on each table. We ate some – they were very tasty.

The basket also had an Easter chocolate egg!

We ate our desert back at the apartment – chocolat was definitely the theme of our trip. Much to our surprise the dog was not empty but had a bunch of chocolate fish inside.
