River Baroness Cruise Photos
Day 7: Paris (3)
Meanwhile, Cheryl was enjoying a sunny Saturday in Paris. She started her day by catching an RER Ligne C train at the Boulevard Victor-Pont du Garigliano station, which was near the quay.
Soon, she was watching a parade near the Eiffel Tower.
Nearby, a bride and groom posed for a wedding photographer.
A young boy played with an Eiffel Tower souvenir.
Across the Pont d'Iéna at Trocadéro, another bridal couple rushed to a photo op (or perhaps to the Mairie for their wedding ceremony).
A pedicab driver waited for a fare.
Cheryl had been wanting to buy a striped bateau top all week, and she saw a perfect example on a passing Parisian.
Tour buses, such as this "hop on, hop off" bus of Les Cars Rouges, were packed with weekend tourists.
A mother communed with her mobile while her child confronted a slide on a playground.
A Peugeot dealership made the most of its lion logo on the Avenue Champs-élysées.
The American Library in Paris was an essential stop for a bibliophile.
On the Pont Alexandre III, the gilded statues glowed in the midday sun.
Later, when Cheryl returned to the Quai André Citroën, she saw a man and his dog returning to a private barge that was tied up along the Seine.
After dinner on River Baroness, the two of us walked down to the next bridge for a reprise (with a closer view) of the Eiffel Tower light show.
