Look at what I spotted yesterday in the park! It gives me hope that Spring is on its way.
We woke up to a gorgeous blue sky and Maurice decided to jog so I rented one of those bikes now for rent all over Paris and set out too. It was a little chilly but because the sun was shining it was a joy to be outside.
Maurice took this photo of me. I look like I’m talking because I was. He always takes a photo, and then keeps pressing the shutter button so I end up with 5 or 6 bad photos of me. First I’m smiling, then my smile is getting stiff, the third photo you see me looking irritated and finally I am striding towards him to take the camera out of his hands. Look at the warm up suit I am wearing. I think I bought this one sometime in the 80’s when wildly, brightly colors were worn by tennis players everywhere. I got lots of looks as people passed by. They were either thinking, “Wow, what great colors!” or “What the hell is she wearing?” I’m thinking the latter.
We headed towards the Bois de Vincennes which is criss-crossed with jogging paths, bike circles and horse trails.
Here is a look at one of the jogging paths. I moved here to Paris a few months after that huge storm when a high wind blew down thousands of trees all over France. There were trees and logs lying all over this park for several years. They finally got it all cleaned up.
In one section of the park they were doing bridal photos.
Then we went back home and, man, are my knees killing me. I am really out of shape.
