I almost turned back and went "home". I dislike crowds and Montmartre was a-crawling with masses. But, I have the itch to walk every day and see new sights. So I took a subway or two to the east end of town to a stop on the Seine and found myself across the street from the Jardin du Plantes. Well, I had to go see. Sure enough, plants, but no competition to Giverny. I saw that there was a zoo there too, but I was wanting to be walking the river, so I took a quick walk through the gardens and hit the road. Love that there are so many free gardens and parks to enjoy!
This is me

This was my walk for the day....
