It's been a really miserable week in Adelaide. Perfect weather for staying inside and scrapping. I was hoping to finish my Paris album this weekend, but we have a very busy weekend so it looks like it probably won't happen. Oh well, there's only one more school week until the holidays, so hopefully I can get it finished then. In the meantime, here's a few more pages.
The Grand and Petit Palaces are opposite each other on the banks of the Seine. We had planned to tour both, but after lining up for a short time at the Grand Palais we realised that the line was for a fashion photography exhibition. We were unable to tour the building itself, so we left and headed across the Rue to the Petit Palais where we were able to tour the building. It houses an art museum that focuses on the Fine Arts.
It was a gorgeous building, with many beautiful works of art. For me though, the highlight was the courtyard in the middle. Paris was emerging from Winter into Spring and so the trees were just starting to blossom. So pretty!
Our next destination was the Invalides and to get there we had to cross the Seine. We crossed le Pont Alexandre III several times, and each time we were impressed with the beauty of the bridge. I just had to devote a whole page to it! The photos were taken on different days, hence the sunny and cloudy skies in the photos!
I hope you find some time to do something creative this weekend.
Bye for now,
