Paris: one year ago at the Palais Royal

I woke up this morning with Paris on my mind and when I looked at the date I remembered with a smile that I had arrived in Paris on this day, exactly one year ago. It so happened that I had some photos in my files from that trip that I hadn't posted on the blog. The one above shows the mood at Le Nemours café, which is right by the Palais Royal in the 1st district. We didn't sit down to have coffee, as we had just enjoyed a lovely lunch and dessert in a restaurant on the Left Bank. But it was pouring down rain and the Palais Royal passages surrounding the gardens provided shelter.

  1. It's a rainy day here and these photos fit in the picture just fine. Love that first capture, it looks so lively despite the bad weather.

  2. Great to see these snaps of autumnal Paris, Lisa. I've never visited the city at this time of year so it's nice to see how the city looks with a fall glow!

  3. Thank you for sharing Lisa. They are beautiful.

  4. Such lovely and moody images! So glad you shared these, Lisa, as you know that Palais Royal is one of my favorite spots. It seems like so many people I know are in Paris right now – I'll have to plan to visit in October next year.

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!


  5. The Palais Royal looks so inviting, the lamps hanging in the cafe are wonderful would love to have some just like it for our home.

  6. Lovely photos Lisa! Two of my best friends are actually visiting Paris at the moment, wish I could be there too!x

  7. love the pics....I have just come back from Paris and I have photos that look very similar to these!

    1. sounds wonderful, Kathie, I hope you enjoyed your trip!
