Day Two of our Paris trip was probably the least structured. For one thing it was super hot and humid and we were exhausted from walking so much the day before. We mostly walked around and did some sightseeing. Here are the photos that I took that day:
A really beautiful statue across the river from the Eiffel Tower.
A view of the bell towers of Notre Dam from the Right Bank.
I have no idea which bridge this is, but I love the elaborate statues on pillars guarding the entrance to the bridge.
One of several theaters that we viewed from the outside. This one was by far the most elaborate!
Statues in front of the theater.
And the front entrance complete with banners listing their current and upcoming productions.
A statue of Charles de Gaulle, famous French Resistance leader and later Prime Minister. He is clearly quite loved- check out all the flowers that have been left for him!
An obelisk located near a series of government buildings. We didn't get close enough to see what or who it was dedicated to, but it certainly is a beautiful piece of sculpture.
Royal Gardens courtyard.
This was fenced off, I think it was for members only.
A view of the Arc de Triomphe from the center of the Champs-Elysees.
After two days of walking, we decided to split an indulgent dessert: a crepe with brownie bites, fudge, banana, whipped crème, chocolate sprinkles, and two types of ice cream. Yum!!
We had a great time but went to bed super early because we were both exhausted from the heat and the walking.
