    A simply dressed and delicious salad! I took that boat trip on the Seine, beautiful! That’s as close as I got to Notre Dame too, go figure! Yep, melons are BIG in France. Always order tickets before leaving home for most venues during tourist season, I usually do, and love to just walk past all of the tourist queued up for hours.

    The day can get real long for children, a glace should help! Did they tell you that the locks are going to be coming off? They are removing the whole gate and putting it in a museum I believe. The weight of the locks are causing problems for the stability of the rails. Too bad, I put a lock there one year, in the Czech Republic also!

    Happy that you are having a great time.
