Julie had spent a lot of hours preparing for their visit to Paris. They used JoLi' as a home base.

It was delightful.  Each morning they'd set out for the day on an excursion that they had selected.

We'd have dinner together on deck catching up on how their days had gone.

We all did a Giverny visit.

A special end of the trip event for all of us was an evening concert in St. Chapelle

followed by dinner and a stroll along the Seine at night with the spectacular Paris lights.

The majority of these photos were taken by Guy during their visit.
