Bastille Day

Yesterday was Bastille Day.  Most everything was closed except a few cafes here and there.  We laid low.  Fred and I went out and had lunch alone and strolled around the galleries.  Jessica and Emily came out and met me while Fred went back to the apartment and we strolled some more.  Last night, we had a picnic.

We decided that sitting in the area around theFireworks
Invalides was the way to go.  Not too crowded and with decent views.  There was definitely something magical sitting on the grass, Invalides in the back ground, the Eiffel Tower lit up and sparkling in the distance with fireworks going off around it and our favorite bridge, Pont Alexandre, to the right. 

It was the perfect way to spend Bastille Day.
