Once again I spent some quiet time sitting in a café on the island just watching the world go by. It was a bit chilly, but the sun was shining from time to time.
My previous time was a weekend and had the crowds to prove it. This was a weekday and one that was a bit cold as well. (That did not stop many people from getting ice cream!) I was outside to the right of the entrance. There was one other table in use until just before I left when one more table was taken.
The top picture is looking right. The bridge goes over the Seine towards the north. The lower picture is looking slightly left. The bridge is still off to the right, but you can see the road around the island heading towards the downstream end.
The sun is present, but the row of tables was in the shade. That is fine with me. It will be warmer when Jan is here and I am sure she will like that better.
