The Cafes of Paris

After our visit to the Notre Dame Cathedral, Ricky and I found a cafe opposite where we could be sheltered from the weather but observe the comings and goings around this historical site.

This was just one of many cafes which line the streets with large open windows so you can take in the view.  They also have many tables outside and in warmer weather the streets would be lined with extra patrons enjoying their time in the city.

If we had had more time in Paris we probably would have repeated these cafe retreats many times.  The wine never failed to please and you could partake of snacks or a full meal if preferred.

The passing parade of people was of great interest and this image does not take in the many, many people we observed in our time there.  It made me appreciate how much Paris is a visited city.  If they were here in their droves in the winter, how much more so in the summer.

The cafes were good, the food was great and our short time spent here was very precious and will always be a treasured memory for me.  Thank you, Ricky, for making it possible.

You definitely had a ring-side seat to view the crowds. I think you and Ricky made the most of your time in Paris and have created some wonderful memories together.
