Fabulous Cousin and I decided to take advantage of the lack of rain, sleet, snow and fog and headed out to Versailles.
We bought sandwiches at a marvelous bakery on rue Saint-Honoré and ate them on the train – it’s a short, cheap ride on the RER C from the Musée d’Orsay, and as you’re told often, an 8-minute walk from there to the palace grounds.
The lines were horrendous, so we opted instead to head to the “backyard.”
Fab Cuz commented that it must be beautiful in the spring, which made us realize that he’s only seen Europe in the dead of winter. We hatched a plan for April in Paris; details to come!
On the way back we stopped into this charming store, where I bought an old Livre des Vancances. Delightful!
