Until last week, I don't think I had ever walked across the Pont d'Austerlitz in Paris. The views of Notre-Dame and the buildings along the river on the Ile Saint-Louis were spectacular, as you can see.
I'm not being chronological here. This was the last part of my walk through Paris, and I was on the other side of the city from the Place de la Concorde. My train back to Saint-Aignan would be leaving from Austerlitz station at about 4 p.m.
Before going into the train station, I took a little detour through the corner of the Jardin des Plantes — the botanical garden in Paris — near the natural history museum.
As you can see, a lot of other people had had the same idea. It was the Toussaint (All Saints Day) vacation, so schools were out. There were a lot of children in the park with their parents.
