We had variations on “surf and turf” starting with terrine and snails.
On to sole meunière and steak tartare.
Not sure what to do today. Perhaps a train out to Chartres, where I haven’t been for many years.
I don’t know what these trees are, but they are blooming all over the city, different colors.
In the Luxembourg Gardens the orange blossoms are about to open. They are already on the breeze.
Mass in the chapel of the Immaculate. I took this as it started, but it really filled up… on a Saturday midday. Nice to see.
At the Musee de Cluny, medieval collection, there was a fine, working sundial.
The second half of the piece, together showing the makeup of the Church.
The oldest inscription in Paris, from the time of the Emperor Tiberius.
I found a great Christological Goldfinch.

Luxembourg Gardens… back for nice stroll before supper.

Paté au foie gras.
And to help it down…
Time for compline.
