Bastille, a Tea Shop, and Lido

Our Monday morning walk took us around the busy Place de la Bastille, past the new Opera National de Paris  Bastille (the new opera house), down the pebble walk along the Canal St-Martin, through a lock, and out to the Seine River retaining wall, with Notre Dame in the distance to our right.

I photographed Jerry and Martha placing their lock on the bridge near Notre Dame.  Hundreds and hundreds of locks have been secured to the bridge.  We dressed somewhat French (with a southern accent) for the occasion.

A little shopping, risotto for dinner at an outdoor cafe along Champs-Elysees and then Lido-Champs Elysees-Paris at 9:30 PM…another amazing day in Paris.

  1. What a great time we had. Super pics too and I cannot wait to see the Eiffel lighted and sparkling on the last night of your visit as we cruised the Seine. Miss you already. Martha
