After that we headed to the Musee de l Orange …. They hold the amazing giant Monet Water-Lilly Collection …. I died …. also yet again no pictures. As we passed the guards on the hallway I snapped a pic …. Yikes … Well the French guard said “next time you decide to steal artwork, silent your shutter”. Good point sir. I explained to him how this is my favorite artist and I was not stealing showed him the pic of the hallway … I told him just wanted to document I was here. He said he understood, don’t do it again and explained why they no longer allow photos. Cameras have gotten so good, that copyright is becoming an issue. It’s so sad that this is such a issue now a days and totally understand. However I PROMISE … this pro is using it for my scrapbook only. I gave him an American handshake and we moved about our day. Didn’t obviously get the pictures I wanted but I have a shot saying I was there and a bunch of Monet goodies from there shop I got sucked into.
On the way walking we enjoyed some crepes on the river seine and locked our love on the love bridge. Side note while dropping a key in make sure a boat is not coming. Ours made it in the water thank goodness. We then took our tourist bus tour. It was two hours and took us all around paris. We enjoyed it and it also gave a us an idea on how to get around, plus gave our “feets” a rest.
