Last day in Paris

Today is our last day in Paris. Tomorrow we head to Amsterdam via train.
After a nap and rest in the room yesterday Curt and I headed out in the early evening to Montmartre. It was a cool and busy neighborhood. We walked around for a bit. Then we found a cafe to have a seat. We each ordered a big beer. And then decided to order a snack--cheese and meat plate. It was delicious. It ended up filling us up and we didn't need any dinner later. (We hit that cafe in time because soon after it started to pour rain.)
Eventually the rain stopped and we continued walking. We walked up to Sacred Heart. Beautiful building and pretty good view of the city from up there. It was so busy up there. Lots and lots of people.
Today met the parents for breakfast and then headed out to Ste. Chapelle again. The stained glass in that place was magnificent.
Afterward we all split up. Mom and Fred went out walking to some neighborhoods and garden. Curt and Marilyn went to some museums. And Ed and I headed out to visit the Arc de Triomphe and walk around Champ-Esyslees. We stopped at a cafe for a drink. Then a little more walking and then back to Rue Cler for lunch. We Skyped with the niece/nephews/grandchildren when we met back up with Curt and Marilyn. Then Curt and I came back to our room for a little relaxing. Shortly we are meeting the parents for our last dinner in Paris. After that I hope to get one more night view of the Eiffel Tower.
Not sure what our Internet access will be while in Amsterdam since we will be staying on canal boats. But will update as I can.
