Sunday in the Parc Monceau

P1080416

Nothing better than a Sunday walk in the Parc Monceau. DH is napping so the Little Miss and I take the bus and enter by the avenue Velasquez entrance.

The buildings on this street are amazing. Wouldn’t it be great to live here?

A statue dedicated to author, Edouard Pailleron, in front of more gorgeous residences — who lives *there*?

The pyramid Monceau. One of the fun “folies” to be found in the parc.

How many generations of Parisian children have played on these swings? So sweet.

A new feature in the park: a Japanese garden.

But what’s going to be installed here? Can’t wait to see!

Very romantic lake.

So pretty on a sunny day. Or like today, when the sun finally peeps out!

Pony rides are obviously a favourite with all the children. Can’t wait until Little Miss is old enough to take her first balade.

A spin on the Merry-Go-Round is another must.

A Merry-Go-Round in Paris is always magical!

After a lovely walk, Little Miss and I leave by the avenue Velasquez again. Goodbye Parc Monceau, see you again soon!
