The weather has turned on us again, oh well. This morning we took the Métro to Place de la Madeleine (sorry Mum no choc cupcakes for me, they will only make lil lo cry) where all the luxury shops are & more importantly Ladurée & Fauchon! Having already be in to Ladurée we only did some window shopping there & headed to Fauchon to drool at the chocolates, amongst other things. Is there anything the don't sell!? From there we walked through the Jardin des Tuileries which after yesterdays trip to the Jardin de Luxembourg was surprisingly tame. In the summer the Tuileries have a Carousel, pony rides, a fun fair, Ferris wheel & miniature sailing boats for hire but today in the cold weather there wasn't alot happening- although Ryder loves finding rocks to throw in the ponds.
So from there it was back on the Métro to St Paul, our favourite shopping area, conveniently located within walking distance from our apartment. We headed to the beautiful toy shop that Roger & Ryder found yesterday, called Tumbleweed. There we found something very special for someone back home, but we could have bought so many beautiful things there. In truth most of the things that they sell are too precious & delicate to be used by children.
From there it was off to the Creperie (sorry can't work out how to type the accent) 'Suzette' for lunch-yum!
