I took these photos later in the day, near sunset, after posting my recent sunrise photos. A front (une pertubation) was moving in from the northwest, bringing rain or at least the threat of it. This slideshow is made up of eight photos and runs for less than a minute. These photos are not in chronological order, and I probably should have put the picture of the beautiful sunset last in the series. It hows how the day ended.
My North Carolina trip begins tomorrow. First I have to take a train from Saint-Aignan via Tours to CDG airport north of Paris. I'll spend the night in an airport hotel and fly out on Thursday morning, destination Raleigh-Durham airport in North Carolina, arriving in the middle of the afternoon the same day. There I'll pick up a rental car and drive 3½ hours out to the coast, to my home town. It's a long trip — from Saint-Aignan to Morehead City— it takes about 36 hours. At my age, it's pretty tiring. Not to mention the jet lag (six hour time difference with France).
However, I've decided to go into Paris for dinner Wednesday night, after checking in at the airport hotel and leaving my luggage in my hotel room. Some friends from California are arriving in Paris a few hours before I do, and I've found an interesting looking café in central Paris where we can have dinner together.
The last time I went to Paris was in October 2017 — Oct. 9, to be exact. I was flying off to N.C. that time too, and I took the train from the airport into the city on the evening before departure. I had a good dinner with CHM in his neighborhood in Paris and then took a long walk through the city before catching my RER train back to the airport. Tomorrow is again Oct. 9, and I'm more or less retracing my steps two years later to the day. Walt says I'm in a rut.
