Our 2016 adventure has been another wonderful experience and literally ends on a high . . . . as we celebrate Bev’s birthday up on the Eiffel Tower !! To share our last few days, in Paris with Alison and Neil was also icing on the cake!!
Our final evening in Paris, July 6th, began with dinner at 58 Tour Eiffel admiring the view on the way up. A three course dinner, nouveaux cuisine was delicious . . . . complete with birthday candle on dessert!
We decide to walk down the stairs as the lift was full!
It is football mania here — France hosting EUFA 2016 — and France is in the final! A giant soccer ball hangs precariously – half way up the Eiffel Tower!!
Our river-boat cruises down the Seine and the weather is balmy . . . . . perfect! The riverside is packed with people relaxing & enjoying the buskers as the sun sets behind the Notre Dame.
In Paris, we caught up with Jack (from USA) – whom we met last year in Brussells. After a great walking tour near his lovely apartment in The Marais, Jack took us for a driving tour of Paris at night — Champs Elysees, Tour Eiffel, etc — all the way back to Bruce in his carpark in the 13th!!
Bruce conquered the English Channel again (P&O helped!) and was happy to be pressure washed in Basingstoke before being tucked up in his overcoat!!!!!!!
This is Bev, Mark & Bruce Signing Off for 2016!!
