Les Étangs de Hollande

On Sunday afternoon we had lunch with Patrice's granddaughter Léa who lives in the suburbs southwest of Paris. On the way home we drove through the forest of Rambouillet. We stopped to take a walk along the Étangs (ponds) de Hollande which were built during the reign of Louis XIV to bring water to the fountains in the Parc de Versailles.

As we drove home through Paris, I couldn't help talking one more photo of the Eiffel Tower. I know it's a cliché, but I still pinch myself when I pass by. I can't believe I actually live here.
