Bastille Day

Bastille Day always makes me think of dancing in the streets and fabulous Parisian magic à la Audrey Hepburn and William Holden in Paris When it Sizzles. But under a rainy, slightly chilly Saturday, we opted for a trip to the Invalides where all the trucks and military machines that paraded down the Champs Elysées were parked for display. It was probably a little more exciting for monsieur than for moi, but I'll admit, I did have a little fun pretending to drive the jeeps! 
Paris put on its dancing shoes for Saturday's fireworks show - we watched it from our magnificent balcony with the perfect view, but walked by the disco ball clad Eiffel Tower on the way back to take a peek at the pre-festivity action.
