Le Jardin des Tuileries


This is the Jardin des Tuileries. In the back right is the gorgeous building Le louvre.
When i was a kid, between the age of 3 till 7 years old. I would play with those sailing boats on the fountain. I would push them with a long stick across the water to the other side. So fun. They used to have pony rides, A "Guignol" puppet theatre show. The Carousel was great too. They gave you a stick and you had to grab rings with it to win a free ride. So many good memories...
If you have not been to Paris look in the picture. Everybody is walking!!!
You get very tired feet at the end of the day but you do exercise this way.

I loved the Tuileries! How very special your childhood memories are. There were kids doing the exact same thing as you did when I was there.

Bonjur ma belle! J'adore Europe parce qu'on marche partout! I ate all the bread I wanted to and was skinny as a rail! Even the French thought I was too thin! The walking does it. Oh, those were the days!

So good of you to pop on by again my dearest!

Debbi, Hubby is a partner to Amber Alert not the Founder. He is the inventor of the GPS. The best, smallest and cheapest in the world. We believe that you have to be proactive and not expect the police to find your child but know where your child is with a GPS.
Amy, we are not crazy rich. Read "i used to design post".
I miss Paris :)
