Le Moulin de la Galette


In April, Marie and I enjoyed a delightful and leisurely déjeuner with Peter at Le Moulin de la Galette. We spent the day strolling the streets of Montmartre and found the back courtyard a beautiful respite from the tourists of Place du Tertre.

I wish that I had one or two of these glasses. Hummmmm, must go back.

Bon weekend!

I am waiting every day to read about all the WILD things you did and do while in Paris :-) this one is another beautiful example. Bon weekend à toi aussi.

Sounds like you and your friend Marie have a lovely time in Paris Genie. What a coincidence that one of my best friends is called Marie and she is French and we did have a lovely time in Paris a few years ago!! Sounds like we both know a good friend when we meet one huh!!!!
Have a great weekend.
Best wishes
Grace

Lovely picture Genie. You have such fun in Paris. A spot to get away from the tourists is always welcome in my plans.

Le Moulin bleu et jaune. Très chic.
You always find the most interesting places, Genie.

Suzi said...

I am smiling today --perhaps we drank from the same glass. It was a lovely treat. x

Sylvia K said...

Delightful post, Genie, as always and a fun, lovely way to start my day! Wish I was there!! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Virginia said...

I suppose you get the pretty glass when you order water, which we never do. Pass me a coupe svp!:)
It was too chilly and rainy when we dined here so we didn't get to experience the charming courtyard, must go back!

Genie said...

Our paths have not crossed as of late...with school and the end of the year testing I have hardly had a free moment. Maybe now I can get caught up on my visiting and commenting. Looking at this glass reminds me of so many neat ones I saw traveling in Europe. I would ask for some, but it was always a problem getting them into my bag for the return home. This is a great shot and love that reflection. You really have a good eye. Hope all is well and you are going to have a wonderful weekend. I certainly am! Hugs form the Other Genie

Starman said...

I'll take the glass in the background, s'il vous plait!

LauraX said...

such a lovely reflection!

Alexa said...

I love it when you focus in on the details! As you know, I'm not above some petty pilfering in Paris, but have also found that if you smile sweetly and ask if you can buy something like this, they sometimes give it to you. And who would say no to you, Genie?

M said...

Another over 100 day finds me looking at this photo and remembering the refreshing, quenching coolness of the water in that lovely glass. The champagne was also a cool, delightful treat. And, of course, the delicious lunch, wonderful company and exquisite courtyard just topped it off! You wrap it all up in this lovely reflection. Bises, Marie

Jack said...

That is quite a famous place. Was M. Lautrec in the corner? And am I to understand that this glass didn't find its way into your bag? Genie!

Randy said...

Now that looks refreshing!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Ann -- Merci!

Pierre -- Merci, mon ami

Jilly -- It was quite refreshing on a lovely April day

Diane -- It was Parisian and just about perfect

anni -- Well there are not too many wild things but we do laugh until our sides hurt -- lots of fun and some serious photography

Grace -- Marie comments often and is a wonderful friend. We have had two great trips to Paris (so far) Merci!

Sam -- Yes, and we never see ourselves as tourists - hah! We do try to blend in and not be conspicuous. Merci, glad you like it.

Vreni -- Ah, yes, the champagne... plenty for everyone!

Léia -- Merci, mes amis!

Gemma Wiseman said...

A stylish, enchanting glass! Beautiful photo!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Dianne -- This was my first trip there and not sure that I would have gone if not for Peter's suggestion.

Jill -- The wine glasses were a light purple and added to the colors... merci!

Bear -- I give Peter full credit for this one, but I did take the most photos.

Suzi -- Oh, I wish that you had been there with us... we just missed each other!

Sylvia -- Merci, and I hope that you have a lovely weekend as well.

Virginia -- There is always a reason to return, n'est-ce pas?

Malyss -- Merci, and the same to you, my friend

AA -- I must return because my "stream of pictures" will eventually run out

Stan -- Many thanks

James -- You have probably been there as well. Merci

Ruby -- I hope that yours is sunny and art-ful

Genie -- Hah, I have the same problem in returning home with my treasures. Wouldn't it be a wonderful memory to drink out of this every day.

Starman -- The one with champagne? Bien sûr!

LauraX -- Merci, and thank you for visiting my blog

Alexa -- I know, and did not know how much I loved this glass and its design until I looked at the photos later... must return!

Marie -- It was a perfect day spent in wonderful company with you and Peter!

Jack -- It was lovely, and there was even a courtyard chat. Regrettably, no... no such glass for me.

Meri said...

Very fun - very chic.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Meri -- Thank you for your visit and comments... come back soon, mon amie.

Peter said...

Still a lot of water in the bottle! Champagne comes first, especially in nice company!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Peter -- And the company was especially delightful. It was a fun day and we soaked up every drop of it (and the champagne, bien sûr!)
