An Afternoon in Montmarte

we walked some of the hilly,
windy streets and then stopped
at a cafe. we sat outside
and enjoyed the view.

  1. Pam- Love your pictures of this area. I have only been there in the summer and it is always so crowded that you are really unable to take in its full beauty. I love how the Parisiens sit outside even in the chilly weather. Hoping to get to Paris this summer for 2 nights this summer between London and heading down to the Italian and French Riviera.

  2. this is good stuff.
    i know that you & the kids get out & explore,
    but with steve along, it looks like a mini vacation.
    i want that little fiat!
    i think dawn needs to get her hands on some gummy eiffel towers for paris-themed parties ♥

  3. Enchanting...all of it! Does the Moulin Rouge still run? How refreshing to see stylish women out shopping for food. It's a looooong way from Walmart! Just saying...lol.
