Sight Seekers Delight tour company -- http://sightseekersdelight.com/. She was AWESOME!! once again!) started us out on our journey through the area and French history.
We were given a brief history of Notre Dame and the island upon which we were standing.
We stopped at a small park where we were introduced to a different small area -- the tree in the background, with the green and gray fence around it, is the oldest tree in Paris and is being protected now.
It turns out that while we were a group of 3, there were 4 others who were with us making us a group of 7 -- a great small group tour. The other 4, a Mom Dad, Daughter and Son were from the San Francisco Bay Area -- and are Episcopalians!
We arrived at the Cathedral and were greeted warmly by everyone. The organ concert and Choral Evensong were brilliant! I love the chancel area of the church.
Here are some other pictures we took from the day.
