The Notre Dame in Spring

Ahhh . . . Paris in spring. What a wonderful time. When Linda and I were there in May, Paris offered us all the sprint-time qualities you read and hear about. Mild sunny days, moderate temperatures, fluffy clouds and blue skies with white fluffy clouds. People are out and about enjoying the sun, enjoying walking around without heavy coats and, of course, enjoying the vibrant city that is Paris.

I feel this picture sums it all up beautifully. The river of course is the Seine and on the left is THE famous Notre-Dame de Paris also known as the Notre Dame Cathedral. I’m sure you all know that Notre Dame de Paris means “Our Lady of Paris”.

There are many famous films that are set in Paris. A few that come to mind include “An American in Paris with Gene Kelly and music of George Gershwin”, Walt Disney’s “Aristocats”, “The Pink Panther 2” and of course, “Ratatouille”. And I am sure there are many more.

The Notre Dame survived the French Revolution in the 1790s, but only just as many of its religious imagery was damaged or destroyed. Some very historic events occurred here at this cathedral. The Third Crusade was announced here way back in 1185 and it is also the place that saw the coronation ceremony of Napoleon.

Anyway, Paris is a wonderful place to stroll around and enjoy the sites, like Linda and I did on this day.
