Europe 2010: Dinner in the Marais

There’s no time to rest when en vacance! After dropping in on Gregg at the gallery, I snatched a very brief nap and then got ready to go out for the evening in the Marais. Clyde Reed, Gregg’s friend and the bass player he’s played with for many many years, along with his wife Cheryl, were also in Paris. They were staying in a wonderful little apartment in the heart of the Marais. We cabbed it over to their place and were soon enjoying flutes of champagne and comparing notes about our Parisian adventures!

We had a great dinner in a small bistro near their place–steak entrecote for me and an amazing duck casserole for Gregg. My favorite creme caramel (c’etait superbe!) finished the meal. I also polished off rather a lot of red wine…! After dinner we walked over to Ile St. Louis for ice cream and to look at the view of the Seine in the moonlight. Is there anything more romantic than Paris on a moonlit night?

I think not.

So another good day in Paris–and only our second. The next day we will have the opening of the exposition.
