Paris Day 8

We had high hopes for today but it turned very cold. High was 48 with a “feels like” temp of 43 and it was very foggy. The cold just went right into our bones.

We did manage to get ourselves over to the base of the Eiffel Tower. What an amazing structure. But why anyone would pay money to go up to the top when there is absolutely no view in this fog, I don’t understand.

I bought my DGD her mini-Eiffel Tower and then we went to the Brasserie at the Eiffel Tower for lunch. I finally had a Croques Monsieur.

Our plan had been to visit the Branley and then the Louvre. But it was so cold, we decided to head back to the apartment for a nap. We got back at 3:00 and both took naps, me for two hours.

This evening we put on some warmer clothes and strolled the Place des Vosges looking in all the galleries.

Kathleen went on to dinner at Tastevin, but I headed back to the apartment. My stomach wasn’t feeling up to a heavy meal this evening. I’ve just been enjoying some downtime with my Nook book on the iPad.

Even with all the downtime, I logged over 11,600 steps today.
