Wednesday 23 November - Buttes Chaumont

Today turned out warm and sunny.  Just right for a walk through Buttes Chaumont parc. There is nothing new about these pictures but the views are always worthwhile

The last of the autumn colors are striking
Even so a tree without leaves can be interesting
We sat for a time in the sun looking over the water.  A pair of noisy green parrots spent some time in a tree close by.

It looks as if there will be a good crop of berries for the birds this winter

The heron is able to fish in peace along the island
We had lunch at the Napoleon III restaurant/bar just across from the parc entrance and the Mairie.  I started with eggs with mayonaise
Mary had salade de nems (springrolls)

I had a magret of goose - a little unusual although somewhat greasy.  Pat H. would have approved of the pureed potatoes

Mary had salmon with fennel
As we were preparing to leave a couple were getting their bicycles ready.  The dog was looking forward to the ride.
