The final part of Day Two continued with a walk through the park...
in which we enjoyed the autumnal colours and statues.
Where we stopped and had the most expensive cup of tea ever!
Sitting alongside this pond, and enjoyed listening to the birds in the hedge. We then continued our walk
past the obelisk to the Champs Elysees where all the Christmas decorations and the 'Le Village des Artisans d' Art' had been set up.
There was an ice skating rink around which were wonderful wildlife displays...
The entrance to the skate park.
Amazing chocolate for sale...very expensive though, we looked only.
Just look at this chocolate tools, would have made a fantastic gift!
We thoroughly enjoyed walking up and down each side and looking at all the stalls. Jill managed to get quite a few gifts for her family and friends. We stopped and enjoyed a crepe.
These were amazing! Painted shells for hermit crabs they were selling.
We watched these for quite a while...one looked like it was planning on changing its accomodation!
We then caught the Metro to the Eiffel Tower and were pleased to see that the top wasn't covered in fog this time!
The queue was far too long to even consider going up the tower, so we had a nice walk round before we caught the Metro back to our hotel...if only it were that easy! We got back to where we thought our hotel was, only to realise we were, slightly lost! A long, long walk later on what felt to me like shards of glass (my feet were sooooo sore!) we finally made it back at about 9pm, exhausted!
