After arriving back at the hotel, we took a five minute rest before going out for a walk to buy macarons. So fun to pass by springtime flowers, and to see the bright green of the trees everywhere (even in motorcycle mirrors).

Paris - Day Two
Today we took the train to Vernon (the station nearest Giverny), where my friend, Geni, met and drove us to Monet's garden. With springtime in full swing, this was, by far, the most crowded I've ever seen this otherwise beautiful place. Everything was still stunning, but the crowds definitely put a damper on the visit. Even arriving first thing in the morning, and with tickets purchased in advance by Geni, it was already a mess of tour buses, and photographing was a challenge. That said, it was great to catch up with Geni (who lives outside of Paris), and to spend time in the charming village.
After all five of us delicate flowers wilted in the warmest day Paris has experienced this year, we drove a short distance to La Roche-Guyon for lunch. Another beautiful village to explore!
And driving back to the train station, we happened upon this, and, no, we don't know what it is.
Thanks for joining us. Stay tuned for more adventures!
