Return Journey

After breakfast we said our goodbyes to the remainder of the southern contingent (two had already left the day before).  They went off to do some shopping whilst we made our way to the Place de La Concorde to see the obelisk and the fountains which turned out to be especially spectacular due to the sun illuminating the droplets of water as they fell.

On the way we called in briefly on the Tuilleries Gardens which are still pretty even at this time of year.  We then had one last drink sitting outside at a cafe bar enjoying the sunshine before making our way back to the hotel to await the taxi that was returning us to the airport in time for lunch.  The taxi arrived on time but checking in at the airport was a bit haphazard and there was a problem with the plane at Birmingham which meant it arrived about an hour late.

Retrieving the cars from the meet and greet parking ran smoothly and we arrived home safe and sound eventually.  Now I am busy planning my next trip ;-)
