The Parc de Sceaux on a sunny February morning!


We took advantage of an absolutely BEAUTIFUL morning today by getting over to the Parc de Sceaux for a walk at around 10 a.m. The sun was shining, the sky was blue and the park was relatively busy...


My favorite little "café/kiosk" at the parc... I hope to sit here with my friends when the weather starts to warm up... I know that Barbara and I will certainly be walking in the parc soon enough, right Barbara?!!

A look inside the little snack bar... we ordered some hot drinks and Alex had a crèpe and a croissant!


Fresh baked pain au choc and croissants... You could smell their fresh baked goodness in the air!!

Here's Vincent, the guy with the pretty blue eyes... always smiling and always friendly!



This is Enzo... a three month old cocker spaniel that I met this morning! Sooo cute!!



A good shot of Alex at the counter!



Bon app, Alex!!

Tea, cappucino, a crèpe, and a croissant.. all for 9 euros.. pretty good!




They cut down the HUGE tree and promised to plant another one in it's place. *The tree was sick and a danger to people...



A sight we "gens de la region Parisienne" don't see very often-- A BLUE SKY AND SUNSHINE!!!!






A sheep enclosure-- sheep are the natural grass cutters at the parc.


Beautiful trees...


Coucou Everyone... Here I am! And Alex's shadow, too!




People doing Tai Chi in the park...



Leaf buds appearing on the cherry trees.... I give it another 4- 6 weeks until we have the beautiful blossoms filling the trees.. Picnic time - mid April!!


Look at how the water sparkles in the sun! Beautiful!!

Joggers in the park...

More Tai Chi-ers

More sparkling water... AHHHH!!!!

Walking around the canal...
That's all folks! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your walk in the park.

Happy Sunday to you, too!! I know I can count on your when the weather gets better.. Not too great today with the horrible wind/rain storm, is it?! I'm afraid to go out of the house on foot to get to the gym!!!
Crazy day!!
