Montmartre Cemetery, Seine cruise & Paris vignettes

Tuesday morning we made our way through neighborhood streets towards Montmartre.

We took a tour of the Galeries Lafayette, an upmarket department store across the street from the opera house.

Inside the Galeries Lafayette – and shopping for the rest of us on the corner outside.

Montmartre cemetery is a good place to hobnob with the formerly rich and famous.

It is a cemetery of a certain age … and enduring style.

We lunched with Berlioz.

And found the last resting place of Osiris (Daniel Osiris, that is).

Sated with ghosts, we wandered back through Paris streets towards the Seine…

…where we hopped a boat for a later afternoon river cruise.

What had been a glorious summer day suddenly turned gray – and the heavens opened.

The deluge included a goodly does of hail – ironically, much like the hail concurrently pummeling my tomatoes back home.

A fitting end to our Paris adventures!
