Last Days

From Chinon we drive back to Paris and return the car.

The little Citroen C3 has been great and served us well.
But what we really enjoyed was that roof!
The roof rolled back to the 'B' pillar, 
and the huge windscreen 
allowed the driver and front passenger to have a panoramic vision 
of everything around them.
A lot of fun!

A final stroll around Paris. 
Pont Neuf, the famous bridge across the Seine, 
that every artist has stood on throughout history 
and painted from.

 Just on the other side of the bridge, a final fling with Sennelier.

A matter of timing.

Even the Louvre has a sense of humour.

We got our old room back for the final evening in Paris. 
Tea on my Van Gogh chair in the loft. 

Midnight light on the ceiling.

Lost and in love. 


  1. Looks like you guys covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. Just got back in time to beat the snow I reckon. Hope the home land treats you gently. We have a lot of little things on the go including Lubna living with us for a week or so.

    Cheers from the European front.

  2. Sigh! Oh, I hope you have both had an amazing lovely time together. Love you both. Mx
