Paris...continued

  During our stay in Paris, we celebrated Easter. Just had to go to Notre Dame on Easter Sunday.
What a beautiful church. So much to photograph. We waited on line with hundreds of others, just to walk the perimeter of the inside during mass. It was really unbelievable!






Crossing the Seine - the Love Locks.



Easter dinner was at Le Procope - the oldest restaurant in Paris. Our dinner was delicious and we sat for about 3 hours! I love how you are never rushed in a French restaurant. 


We walked off dinner and took pics of this beautiful bridge on the way to the Champs Elysées. 
I couldn't believe how busy it was on Easter which is one of the biggest holidays in France.





The day before we were leaving Paris, we went to Versailles. It was immense. Raining. Gorgeous. And incredibly crowded! Here are just a few pics I managed to take between all of the people.



The ceilings and the chandeliers...trés belle!


Marie Antoinette's estate.  Truly out of a fairy tale.



And finally, one last visit to the Eiffel Tower. 


Up next:  a week in the French Countryside.
