A Parisian Adventure - Part 3 - from the Arc de Triomphe to Notre Dame

Well thanks for all the lovely comments about yesterday's post - glad you liked them!  Ready for some more?

Ok, so after we recovered from the steps up and down (which were much better going!) we strolled along the Champs-Elysee which was busy, but the pavements are so wide you don't feel crowded.


you can take a girl out of financial services but...
 soon time for another breather! Sam Emma and Lin having a rest.
 I really should have had a notebook to jot down all these names... lol!

 fabulous little market as we came out of the metro station at Cite on Ile de la Cite to find the Notre Dame...
 our "tour guide" Emma checking which way up the map went...
 no, that's not it...
 there she is! Time to play with the lenses again...
 stunning architecture

 we contented ourselves with the outside, the snaking queue to see inside was rather long!
 just love these gargoyles on the side!
 time for some more close ups!








 

 gorgeous cherry blossom round the back,
 what a spot to stand painting- if only I could!!
 We'll continue our journey from here, in the next post!

Ps that metro station is the one you have in your array of pickies which says metro on it second after the one of us taking a breather in the park.

Oh! I would LOVE to go to Notre Dame! I've been to Paris but didn't go there so it's definitely on my 'to do' list! What an exciting time you all had!
