Jardin du Palais Royal - des étirements


Jardin du Palais Royal


Some stretches before a run.  
How did she ever tear herself away 
from the mesmerizing view of that incredible fountain?

Terrific shot Genie. Let me see ... run or sit by the fountain .. run or sit by the fountain? Think I'll sit be the fountain.

Genie, I meant to thank you for reminding me that there was a fountain at Palais Royal. I've avoided Palais Royal recently due to all the construction and special events. I wandered through the gardens my last week in Paris and it is a beautiful, quiet place to sit and enjoy the day.

A particularly eye catching photo! Love the sparkling water in the background.

A nice place to linger, in the shade with the cooling fountain on hot summer days.

Good question! That chair looks mighty inviting . . .

Starman said...

She has probably seen it so often, she doesn't even notice it any longer!

That's what I should be doing instead of sitting here on the computer.

Jeff, I am glad you made it there again. We were staying nearby and walked through the garden each day. I never tire of its quiet spaces.

Starman, I think that there is some truth to your statement, but at least she is facing that glorious fountain as she stretches.

Anne, I do not know how, but the fountain always seems to sparkle. I did see it once in the freezing temps of winter when it was full of chunks of ice and slush.

Bises,
Genie
