The Queen's Chambre:
From a window in the Hall of Mirrors-this amazing view overlooks a small portion of the south terrace and the gardens.
Matt drinking hot chocolate, complete with the required "pinky" finger move! We are in a Salon, you know!
Wanna guess how much all that decadent dining at the Palace cost? I knew it was a fancy place, and I was expecting quite a bill--and I wasn't disappointed! 32.70E converts to $42.00 US. And it was worth every Euro or penny!
We came out onto the south terrace, where we waited for a small "trolley" to take us to Marie Antoinette's Trianon and Hamlet. Here's Matt, waiting patiently:
The train took us to the Petite Trianon, and we walked to the Hamlet. It was a beautiful, crisp fall day--just perfect for a walk. I loved walking through the leaves!

Taking a little rest before we start our long walk back:
We were really tired by now, we'd walked miles and miles, and it was getting a bit chilly. We walked to the Estate's exit, and were lucky enough to see a taxi right there! We quickly hopped in, and he drove us right to the station, saving us at least a 4 mile walk!
We lucked out and the train back to Paris was at the station, so we just hopped right on. It was a very relaxing 35 minute ride back to town, we even napped a little.
We got off a couple of stops early (as if we hadn't walked far enough today!) and strolled down Rue St Dominique and showed Matt the apartment where we usually stay. We stopped at our neighborhood boulangerie for a couple of baguettes, and made a quick stop at the market for dinner.
Dinner tonight was quick and easy--a bowl of hot delicious soup, baguette and butter. It was just what we needed after our long day.
Dessert of the day: None tonight, we figured our splurge at Angelina's was enough!
Another wonderful day in Paris with my two best guys!
Tomorrow: The Eiffel Tower, and a train ride to the Basilica St. Denis.
