After a little rest, we headed out for our last night in the city. Our hotel is the fifth building down on the right. We were on the 3rd floor.
We took the subway…
Posed next to some weird shops.
And made our last visit to our favorite croissant place.
There are only a few things to do before we go. Like buy a lock, and leave it on a bridge.
Karl carved our initials onto the lock.
We went walking on the Seine. And found a statue, that we thought was somewhere else. Well Karl did.
We went searching for the lock bridge of Paris.
Pont des Arts bridge, was the Love Lock Bridge.
They removed all the locks. But that hasn’t stopped people from trying to put locks on this bridge. AND many others in the city.
There didn’t seem to be any place to really put it, so we grabbed a couple of Lime scooters and went on our journey to find a place for our love lock. We checked out the Fountains de la Concorde.
We found a place on the Passerelle Debilly. Or the Debilly Footbridge. It had a view of the Eiffel tower. We put our lock on the bridge. Then threw our key into the river.
On our way off the bridge we found this…oops.
We had dinner at a little place called La Malakoff.
First course came. We sent a message to the kids.
Karl’s delicious salad.
My delectable French Onion Soup. Or just Traditional Onion soup.
Then dinner came. I won. Yep, Carbonara, and it was incredible. With an egg yoke to put on fresh when you start. YUM!!!
Dessert was basically a flan. Or here called a Creme Caramel, with a crispy cookie sticking out of it.
Made me think of the the Eiffel tower.
They have a light show for the first 5 minutes of every hour. So we loitered around the Palais de Chaillot. We bought souvenirs from African vendors.
So happy to be there.
We walked down to the Jardin Trocadero to find a place to relax while we watched the lights.
And then it began!
We listened to La Vie En Rose, and our other songs and danced, and other stuff. It was very romantic. I know barf, but it was. Really, it was a moment I won’t ever forget.
It was only 9, but we had to finish packing, and we were off early the next day.
On the subway, I was already getting excited to see the kids. I wanted to take them to see this one…
THEN we ran into this group of Scouts on their way home from a camp out. They looked like they were straight from Moon Rise Kingdom.
Right outside of hotel…
Smooshed into the elevator and into bed.
