(Hamish in Paris: Sunday)
Sunday morning Kyle greeted Paris by waking at 6 to watch Carolina drill Clemson. Then with his day made, we loaded up the stroller and set off for some of the sights. The day was so pretty, we decided to walk.
For the most part, Hamish was happy in her stroller. Occasionally she decided she's prefer to be held or to walk (we'd get a chorus of "Up Please!" and "Down! Down!"), but overall, we were happy we had the stroller with us.
We strolled to the Louvre, but the line by the pyramid was insanely long. Later we tried to go to the Musee d'Orsay and it's line was crazy as well. Sunday was museum day, apparently. After resting for a while in the courtyard, we carried on to the Seine and the Île de la Cité. The day before, the riverside book sellers had been mostly closed, probably because of the wet weather, but on Sunday most were open and so we strolled and browsed a bit.
By the time we got to Notre Dame, Hamish was asleep. There's no entrance fee at Notre Dame, so although the line was long, it moved quickly. The building is beautiful and awe-inspiring. But even though it's supposed to be silent, it feels like a tourist attraction, not a church. Hamish woke up when we got inside at the sudden hush. We quickened our circuit when she started calling for Daddy.
(You can tell how overwhelming it is since all of my pictures are vertical. The building is designed to force you to look up.)
We wandered around the Latin Quarter down by the water and then over to Jardin Des Tuileries at the end of the day. Hamish found a carousel so we took a few spins on that before taking the subway back to Montmartre and having dinner.
