Les Adieux a la Reine is a new movie that tells the story of the last few days of Marie Antoinette's life at Versailles. The story is told through the perspective of one of the Queen's maids. Diane Kruger plays the Queen. I am fascinated by this woman and I look forward to seeing the film.
On the train to Versailles... Entertainment AND protection :)
Always look up!
These muted blues and golds... love them!
Hall of mirrors
This picture does not accurately show the beauty of this bed.. The gold, the blues and pinks, the texture, unbelievable.
.. and suddenly we saw this! Made of pots and pans.. thoughts??
NEW DIRECTION at Versailles!
My favorite view
What a view!
Pack a picnic if you visit Versailles. You will need to check your bag prior to touring. Panini's are available almost everywhere and you may bring your choice of beverage.
The salmon is wonderful in Paris. It's lightly smoked and is very fresh.
If you're not familiar with French wines, DO ask for help. It seemed like the local folks sipped more white and rose wine during the day, saving the heavy Cabernet for the evening. This Bordeaux was our choice and it was wonderful.
After all the visual stimulation of Versailles :) a bite of something sweet was needed.
This chocolate boutique was off the beaten path (always my favorite places to shop and dine). Lots of character and delicious goodies. Loved these oranges, and the nougats were yummy!

The jars that the candies are displayed in are so pretty. To the front/left are these LONG marshmallows in a variety of colors. How fun for a kids party! They were very good and not too sweet.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
