This was a truly local Parisian experience and we spent some time watching the crowd and the dancing. We had a hankering to go back to a restaurant on Mouffetarde to which we have been several tmes. Mary liked the poele de St-Jacques which many tourists took as being chicken rather than scallops. This time the menu has been changed slightly to St-Jacques a la Provencal which is more explicit. It was very very good as was my confit de canard. As usual we started with the onion soup which was very good but in a large bowl.

The Jardins de Luxembourg were quite busy in the warm sun but surprisingly there were no boats being sailed in the pond in front of the Senate building. The gulls and mallards had the water to themselves.
The restoration work on the front of St-Sulpice has been finished and it looks great. Once again, there were few people around.
