The Beautiful Notre Dame

We can walk to Notre Dame, it is that close to our hotel. We strolled slowly to Notre Dame, shopping along the way. It was very warm today in Paris and I thought it was going to cool.

Paris is an amazing city, very busy, very lively, everything I love is here. The cafes are sweet, the restaurants are plentiful. Menu chalkboards everywhere, open doors, baskets of bread, waiters and so many different bottles of wine and water. Oh, the fromage, the fromage, is so good.

  6. Hi Rhonda,
    I was just there with my sister in November, and your photos of that magical place are bringing back such wonderful memories! Thank you for sharing your beautiful trip with us!

  7. You have certainly brought the good weather with you!! Isn`t it just divine!!!

  8. Some wonderful pictures here.
    Like those menu chalk boards.
    In all probability, I should be there this August.

  9. Beautiful!

    Vive le fromage francais!

    I think the lack of neon signs and billboards is really one of the best features that lends the city to romance! Chalkboards everywhere! How great is that! So charming!!

    Keep it coming!

    Ciao Bella!

    Oh, i almost forgot! If you are out in the sunshine today and you look down and see your shadow...that's me...say hello!

  12. I'm so enjoying "YOU discovering Paris and France" for the first time.
    Notre Dame is looking beautiful after the cleaning and restoration progam.
    I last visited her October 09 while the cleaning was happening - such a transformation!!!

    You and your camera are capturing the essence of french life - thank you, I love it all!

    How long are you there for?

  13. hi Rhonda, I am so glad you took that self portrait so we could all see your happy face and how much this trip really means to you.
    We are all so lucky to have a friend like you who takes the time to share it with us.
    I am just so happy for you and I am in love with the beauty of it all.
