Where the Sun King lived, and a few others

Started out the day with breakfast at the hotel, actually a very nice, full typical European breakfast. Lots of cheeses, charcuterie, wonderful baguettes, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, etc. oh, and even cereal for Bill...

Here's a little view of it.

Waiting near Notre Dame to meet up with our BikeAbout Tours Guide, we saw police walking by, fully armed. They were present many of the places we went. Looks like the one guy was giving me the evil eye for photographing him.

On the train to Versailles, with April, our wonderful guide.

And we're off. This was just a little prelude to the big bike ride next week. 

First stop was the local market. I wish there was a market like this near me. I can't even begin to describe how perfect the produce and cheeses were! We just do not see this quality and variety of fresh foods at home.

These pears were perfectly ripe

A stop for a little treat too

This page is going to be just food. The Versailles tour will be on the next post.
