I had no idea there were so many pelicans in Wascana Park…
The pictures above were taken a couple of weeks ago, so then I had to go into my photo library and have a look at the other pelican pictures I’ve taken, mostly near the Albert Street Bridge. The last two are my favourite, a happy coincidence of good timing and just the right light.
One of my favourite parts of Paris was being near the Seine River. After a long, cold winter, the real purpose of the trip was not to visit the museums, eat the food, and drink the wine (okay that was part of it, too!!), but to be outside and explore the city on foot.
Every day, and night, included a walk along the river.
Paris is always a good idea. -Audrey Hepburn
After two weeks in Paris, it’s back to work and back to the real world. Paris was everything I imagined it would be and more. It sparked my imagination, and I wanted to check off the “study” box on my customs form on the return to Canada instead of “personal” because I really felt like I was just there to soak it up all up and study the Parisian way of life!
I’ll share more photos over the coming weeks, but for now, here’s a picture of the Paris skyline from the Towers of Notre Dame Cathedral.
A beautiful afternoon in Paris….
It was a rainy first day in Paris, but the rain made for some pretty picture taking opportunities…this is at the end of the bridge (Pont Saint-Louis) which links the two islands in Paris – Ile Saint Louis and Ile de la Cite.
