We were so pooped from museum hopping yesterday that we needed a nice relaxing day. So far all we have done is sit at a cafe having a long breakfast, bask in the sun at Paris Plage (a beach by the Seine that is constructed for one month in late summer), and of course, the obligatory feasting on crepes. #paris

We topped our exhausting day (three museums!) off with a lovely picnic dinner in the Champ de Mars. #paris #toureiffel

A #Giverny #latergram. We stopped here on the way to Paris to see the place that inspired Monet’s later masterpieces.

Imagine an oval room, surrounded by giant Monet canvasses of water lilies and watery reflections at Giverny, where no photos are allowed! One of us broke the rules and snapped this illicit shot, but I’m not telling who. #orangerie #monet
