Nothing is more Parisian than this!

When the temperatures hit 33 or 34 degrees in Paris it is nice to pretend like you really belong here and head to one of the many amazing parks for some down time. One of my personal favorites is the Tuileries.

There is the main huge fountain in the center where you can see and be seen and simply just hang out with the ducks!

Or you can choose to slip off to either of the sides of the park and sit by one of the smaller fountains which have a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower in the background.

And this weekend, I even got to enjoy the quintessential French yacht race!

Who are you cheering for?

Simply a lovely way to spend an hour or two, wouldn’t you say?

    1. They don’t need to! The French government ensures that there are lots of them in each and every park. All you have to do is show up and use them which often involves dragging until you got it and one to put your feet up on in exactly the right position. It is a tough life here! Especially if you are the public servants who are responsible for counting the chairs…glad that isn’t me because I don’t think I could count that high.
