Paris, Étonnez Moi

Great gratitude for the opportunity
to wander Paris 
with two groups of wonderful women
and continue to be amazed.

An abundance of riches —
delicious food, fine wine,
satisfying shopping,
visual feasting,
a riot of laughing
and new friends.

Rain was rare
and added to the magic.

We took silly selfies,

meandered in Montmartre,

gushed over charming puppies,

posed with the Eiffel Tower,

enjoyed Chopin on the street,

visited with bladers on the bridge,

Chris, Karen and Marcy 

Brooks and Dana
played on the plinths in the Palais Royale,

Dominique, Marcy and Debra
inhaled the gift of Alber Albez's creativity ,

 photographed our shadow,
'licked' some windows,

looked in some windows,

Je suis stupéfié!
