For lunch we picnicked in St. Martin park in the Marais neighborhood with food from the same bakery we ate from at breakfast. I had Quiche Lorraine and split a strawberry tart with The Greek. The park was small, but beautiful with all the flowers in bloom. I did some "people watching" while we ate. I wish I had pictures, but some things are better to stay exclusive to your memory because they just can't be captured.
That afternoon we took the metro to the Arc de Triomphe and then walked down the Champs Elysees. We stopped at the famous Laduree bakery and tried some macaroons, which we didn't care for, but the shop was adorable. We sat awhile in the park by the Petit Palace. It, of course, was lovely also.
We saw an awesome street dancer. I wish my little town would have street performers. I loved all the talented artist we saw dancing, singing and playing instruments while we were in Paris.
Later that evening we went to the Pompidou museum of modern art. Unfortunately, all the Dali's were in Spain. But, I got to see two Marc Chagall's, which I loved. We didn't spend much time there.
That night we had the BEST salmon for dinner at L'Orangerie right on our island St. Louis. And I tried Tarte Tatin for dessert, it was okay, but basically apple pie.
