This lovely little island in the Seine is a favorite spot in Paris. We were lucky enough to find parking here last Sunday and traversed the island en route to Notre Dame--which happened to be hosting a Palm Sunday mass when we arrived. Oh how the choir sounded like angels! I took a picture of my sister right next to where we parked our car. Talk about a scenic parking spot!
On our way to Notre Dame we passed these beautiful doors, in the most amazing shade of turquoise blue. Granted, Paris is full of blue doors and they are all lovely; but we found these particularly striking. Berthillon, the famous ice cream stop of Paris, also calls Ille Saint Louis home and so a trip was definitely in order. However, upon arrival we realized we were still quite full from the massive amount of pastries we'd just consumed; so for the second time this year, I sadly bid adieu to Berthillon :)
I loved this particular approach to Notre Dame. The little bridges, the quiet streets, and the view of it's "backside" was spectacular!
