Dad picked us up from the hotel in the morning, as the CCGD departed for the airport. He was definitely happy to have Lance and I back!
We decided to stay in Paris another day, and visited the shrine of St. Catherine Laboure at Rue de Bac. Again, as it seems to happen when we visit religious sites, they were just starting Mass. We stayed for a beautiful French mass, then walked around the neighborhood and bought quiches from a local market. After lunch, we spent the rest of the afternoon studying guidebooks, and brainstorming of where to go next.
That evening we had an awesome meal at a French bistro, then headed off to the Eiffel tower just as it was lighting up. Since we had not been to the Eiffel tower during the evening before, it was dazzling! The tower started out with a bronze light, then it began glittering all over! Fabulous night!
