We did it! We are here!
We arrived with all of our luggage on Tuesday. I had ordered a sketching palette and we picked it up grabbed lunch and found a delightfulplace of a glass of wine. Checked into the Hotel Regent and took a couple hour nap.
We then de idea to get our bearings in a strange land that we had studied on line with no concepts of spacial orientation. We had no idea things were so close by. We walked to the Pont Neuf Bridge and immediately encountered plein air Painters! They were setting up form the sunset on the Seine River.
We slept very late, being exhausted. There is a Batobus river taxi, hop on and off all you like and see things from the water. We bought a two day pass for $29 euros each. Way cheaper that the buss or any cab fare. We enjoyed the boat ride and hopped off at the Eiffel tower. Snacks, pictures and a sketch. Worked our way back towards the hotel. I was in the Sennlier Art Supply store long enough to grab a travel set of paints.
Enough for one note. Just excited and wished to share!
Please do not post anything on fb - trying to be at least semi private, and still share with friends!
