We spent another glorious weekend in Paris in July, Nick on business and I tagging along for the ride. It was an exciting time to be there because the weather was nice and the banks of the Seine were covered with sand and palm trees for the annual Paris Plage. We did some of our usual favourite things, which have already been pictured on these web pages, so I didn't include photos of familiar spots. If you're interested, CLICK HERE to see photos from exciting past experiences! Meanwhile, here are some of the things we saw and did this time around...
