St Cloud

I totally forgot about these pictures from...October maybe? No wait, it was mid-September. Anyway, for the big open house weekend they had in Paris/France, I headed out to the 'burbs to the Parc St Cloud. They have spectacular fountains that they only run on special occasions like this, and only for an hour! So it was really kind of posh.


Yeah, that's right. They are real. Now leave me to my sheaths of wheat.

But it's a lovely André Le Nôtre garden to explore, filled with sprawling lawns and orderly lines of trees and hidden sunken canals and ponds- it's huge. If you keep walking, you would eventually hit Versailles.

There used to be a huge chateau here that was destroyed during the Prussian war, so now it's just a park. They have the Rock the Seine concert here every summer and you can take the metro out to the last stop to get here.


For an hour on this particular Sunday, the fountains made magic.
