Buttes Chaumont

DÉJEUNER SUR L'HERBE

Bonjour. That title means 'Lunch in the Grass' by the way. And it is a famous painting by Manet (you can see it if you double click on this post).  We went to Montmartre on the weekend to see Sacré Coeur Basilica, and it was as stunning as always.

So today it really was time for a family day (= no tourist activities) so we decided to go to Buttes Chaumont park for a picnic. It was a great idea and we had a lovely day. 

We started off at the playground.

The park has waterfalls and little rivulets. This offers great spots for playing.

Lili made little fairy houses of sticks. 

The belvedere at the top is a nice viewpoint. Our picnic spot was just behind the folks on the left on the bank...
