Another anniversary in Paris day four

Street art in the Rue de Seine

The weather was stormy overnight and so, unfortunately was my stomach. Clearly something I’d eaten at the Relais de l’Entrecote had disagreed with me rather badly (I suspect the cream on my dessert). I was up and down to the bathroom all night so neither of us got much sleep and I was still feeling rough this morning. So our planned wedding anniversary celebrations had to be put on hold in favour of a much quieter day.

We did take a slow stroll down to the river along one of my favourite Left Bank streets, the Rue de Seine, and I summoned up the energy for a few street art shots.

We sat for a while by the Pont des Arts but really I still needed rest, so we went back to the hotel. I then sent Chris out on his own to enjoy a walk and some lunch while I had a nap.

In the evening I was feeling a little better, well enough for a light meal, so we went to the café in the Place Saint Sulpice for omelettes. As we finished our food the rain started and soon turned into a deluge! Even under the awning we got a little wet, while passers-by in the square got drenched.

But the rain soon cleared, and the flooded gutters drained quickly, so we were able to walk back to the hotel for a much needed early night.

What a shame your anniversary celebrations were affected by a bad tummy. Love the street art photos, though. ♥

Thanks Grete :) Luckily I was quite a lot better by the next day and able to enjoy our last morning in Paris!

Oh no! I cannot tell you how many trips we have been on where one or both of us have got sick. Especially when I was working and we used to set off on the day I finished. It was so frustrating. I sympathize.

Thanks Irene. It's nearly always me that gets this sort of thing and usually I can get over it by the following morning but this was an especially nasty bout :( Still, at least Paris is close to home and we'll be back there again soon!

Oh dear, so sorry to hear things finished off badly. You do not mention how much that Relais place cost but I'll bet it was not cheap and you still became ill, damned poor performance on their behalf.

At least, as you say. you are almost bound to return as I know how much both of you love "gay Paris" and I know it is only a tiny drop in the ocean but you may well have affected their business to a minute degree with people taking note of what you write here as you are very well respected.

Keep the posts coming, I love them.

Thanks Fergy. I wouldn't want to knock the restaurant too much. I can't be certain I picked it up there (although it seems most likely) and we've never had any problems with the London branch we go to.

So sorry. Bad timing for your special anniversary. Life isn't fair . . .

But you did get a trip to Paris and some stunning photos. Hope you are feeling better.

Oh no! Sorry about your tummy! Very annoying when that happens during a holiday!

by hennaonthetrek

Very annoying Henna, and particularly this time when it spoiled our anniversary plans!

by ToonSarah
