I recently blogged about a picnic Scott and I had near the Eiffel Tower. I realized that we have these picnics every single year we go to Paris... it's truly one of our favorite things to do.
So simple, so relaxing, and well, romantic.
Here are some of our random picnics we've enjoyed over the years. If you ever go to Paris,
I highly recommend it!
On our first trip, we went here to buy our food... we had NO idea what we were doing...my heart was actually pounding as I walked through here and tried to pick up the vibes and figure out what to do. Rules, rules, rules... only in France! They really prefer to choose the fruit for you in this kind of market. However, in the grocery store, you are supposed to weigh the fruit yourself and mark it... seriously? When I got to the counter with unweighed fruit, all kinds of French was being spoken to me... I finally said, "Never mind," and sheepishly walked off. Of course, Scott is always standing three feet behind me, acting like he doesn't know me. He's really good at sending me ahead to get all the foolishness out of the way, before he enters the picture to pay.
We must have figured it out, because here we are at Tuileries.
Scott feeding the pigeons some of our strawberries.
A random picnic at the Louvre. See our must have item... the strawberry tart.
Click on this photo and you can see the elderly couple walking together in the center... Scott and I hope that's us someday...still visiting Paris years from now~
Oh, notice the green chairs I'm always talking about that are almost in every park we've ever been to... straight-back, straight-back with arms, and lean-back with arms. It's always a chore to find two empty lean-backs together. Oh... they weigh a LOT, and are hard to drag around. Maybe that's why they stay put day after day. I'm afraid in America, someone would back up their giant truck and haul them off. I guess the thought is... if you see one of these chairs on someone's balcony, or in their apartment, you KNOW it's stolen... LOL.
