April in Paris is  incredible!  The weather is lovely, people are friendly, and this city is hopping with energy.

Today we visited  Sainte-Chappell – a  13th  century chapel with oodles of stained glass  windows that sparkle on a sunny day. We had the sunny day but the chapel is also under  restoration so some of the windows were under cover.   What we could see were beautiful.


Then  onward to the 700 year old  Notre Dame where we stood in a long line to  climb the some-odd 300 steps up to the façade between the two towers,  for not only  some breath-taking  views of the city, but also some close up views of the critters on top of the cathedral.

Let me give you some visuals….


Is he sticking his tongue out at  the city of Paris?????


These guys are laughing  at all those people in those looonnnnggggg lines to in get into this church.


And look at this guy!  I guess if  I’d  been stuck up on the roof for 700 years, I would be so looney I’d  swinging a knife around also!   But enough of the scary stuff…….


Close up of one of the three front doors of Notre Dame.


Stay tuned…… more of Paris to come…….

Thanks for reading!
