Day Two continued...After lunch we set off to cross the Seine river to make our way towards the Lourve which we needed to walk through to get to the park and make our way to the Champs Elysées.
We decided to cross over the Ponts des Arts bridge where lovers' have been sticking 'cadenas d'amour' (love padlocks) to the railings.
Despite them being removed by officials once, the locks have returned and are more plentiful than before and look like they are there to stay.
Henry was fascinated by them and had a good look at all the different types.
He especially liked this lock, thinking it most interesting.

My turn to pose now ;-)
Henry was getting tired so asked for a ride in my bag...I'm making him comfortable!
The entrance to the Louvre
Henry taking another well earned rest!
He enjoys sitting near the waterfalls.
The glass pyramids, completed in 1989, the main one of which serves as the main entrance to the Louvre.
Henry on one of the plinths in front of a smaller pyramid.
He attracted a lot of attention and several people asked to photograph him.
As well as stand to have their photo taken beside him!
Next it was Jill's turn to get up on the plinth...
My turn...I'm much more conservative!
Henry couldn't resist standing in front of another water feature
Art in action!
My handsome Henry
Some more people stopped to ask to take photos of him.
That's it Henry says, time to move on, as he walks off.
The Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel was built on the site of the former Tuileries Place between 1806 and 1808 to commemorate Napolean's military victories of the previous year.
Stay tuned for the completion of Day Two tomorrow...
