|The only quiet time...8:00am (The "lush" had all gone home to bed!)|
A trip to Versailles--a place that makes the word "palace" truly an understatement. Once a king's hunting grounds was later transformed by Louie XIV into an astounding and ornate ode to royalty. The apartments to the King and Queen, the Hall of Mirrors, the Chapel and Opera --plus a later addition--the Museum of History of France highlight the splendor of French Art and the impressive reign of this iconic French king.
|Long, long lines|
|Louie XIV in all his grandeur|
|The endless gardens...with a hidden ice cream shop in the center. The only way to beat the heat!|
|The frescos were a sigh to behold|
|Trekking around Paris with my Pops|
|Awesome reflective mirrors made spectacular selfies|
The town itself was charming...a fun place to shop and eat... my favorite: spinach quiche.
