Today we go to Versailles! It was our first attempt to travel beyond the Metro on the RER train system, and we managed it pretty well (only one minor mishap). Even after the Louvre, there is no excuse for Versailles! http://en.chateauversailles.fr/homepage. We arrived at the palace in the late morning, and it was as crowded as predicted. As you can see, the day was gorgeous – sunny and a little breezy and cool.
Bess and Vicki lost each other in the Hall of Mirrors in the Royal Apartments about noon, and we didn’t find each other until about 6:00 pm as the park was closing.
Do visit the web page (above) as our pictures can’t possibly do it justice.
If I lived in Paris, I would come out here often for the day, and stroll (rather, hike) around the gardens. Golden Gate Park, eat your heart out!
