Even when the weather wasn't "oh, so nice", eating outside was still a sight you could expect to see.  I don't know if Parisians like the fresh air more than most, or if they just want to be able to smoke a cigarette with more ease....either way, I love their eagerness to enjoy being outside. 

Now that the weather has started to finally shape up, not only is outdoor cafe eating still a MUST, picnics are a must as well.  Luckily for me, I am an avid fan of picnics and always have been.  I feel like back home, we never did it enough. This will be a "French thing" that I will definitely bring back with me!


Tonight, we had a picnic with Eric's work colleagues right next to Notre Dame, in the Latin Quarter.  We found a spot on the edge of the River Seine and had a lovely time!  The weather held out, with no rain in sight....and a sunset over the cathedral that was absolutely stunning! My pictures can't do justice to the pink and purple hued clouds reflecting sparkles off of the river. *[Sigh]....I love Paris.*
