I was thinking about making this trip next Monday, but was looking at the weather report last night and today was determined to be the most promising for the next week. It is confusing because my weather app for Paris said no chance of rain, and Yahoo weather gave weather warnings with 40% chance. Nevertheless, it was better than the future forecasts and I've come to not worry very much about them at all. Coming from Seattle, we do forge on. As it turned out, the day was mostly sunny, maybe the nicest I've had so far.
I was there early enough that I was able to catch little spaces to photograph and to "be" without people nearby, but there were
hoards of people. I dont imagine there ever is a time where there is no one on the bridges during open hours. Nonethess, it was a privilege to be able to walk where Monet walked. I can so well see how he was brilliantly inspired!
The icing on the cake that was my day was that I met a California couple waiting for the shuttle (for an hour!) back to Vernon and it was a pleasure to spend a couple hours speaking English with delightful folks.
For those of you with Facebook, (everyone except Beth?) these picture may be a repeat of the ones I put in an album there.
