We wake at 8 a.m. to the captain announcing that the shore is 20 minutes away.
Jumping out of bed, we pack as fast as we can and rush to the car. Before we know it, the boat comes to a stop, and we arrive in France.
Driving of the boat we start on the road to Paris one last time. It took longer then we expected, but we arrived in Paris around 6:00 p.m. We were in time to see the Eiffel Tower light up. After parking the car we walked to La Terrasse du 7éme for dinner.
We ordered entrecôte with frites, and duck breast with sautéed vegetables. Tres Bon. It was all delicious. The duck breast was juicy and the buttery vegetables were a perfect accompaniment. It was perfect and I’m sure the folks at Duck Dynasty would approve. After dinner we walked over to the Eiffel Tower.
We decided to climb the tower, and went as far as we could before the tower closed. From our perch we enjoyed an amazing view of the City of Light, until closing time forced us to leave.
Time for dessert, so we head to Hagan Das by the Arc de Triumph. I ran in, grabbed some ice creams ,and brought them out to the car.
We decided to drive around the city. We drove past the Louvre and made a quick stop at the amazing Notre Dame Cathedral. No one was there … it was just the Cathedral, us, and a few freakishly huge rats. It was incredible standing in front of the huge cathedral, and thinking back on the history of this one place.
After seeing the amazing City of Lights for the last time … on this trip, we hit the road, stop at a shell gas station close to Charles de Gaulle Airport, and get ready to do our last night of car camping. 😉
