Afternoon at the Parc de Sceaux

On Saturday Lionel and I spent the afternoon at the Parc de Sceaux.  It was the first time either one of us had ever been (pretty sad considering Lionel has been living in Paris for about 20 years!) and I was surprised by how nice the park is and how much there is to see and explore there.  There are manicured gardens, fountains galore, lots of grassy areas for relaxing, picnicing or playing sports, the grand canal to walk along, the chateau to see, woods to explore, a museum and some other buildings on site.  We decided to take advantage of the excellent weather on Saturday and wandered around the park, exploring and relaxing.  I think it's definitely one of my favorite parks in the Paris area, and what was really nice was the lack of people there Saturday afternoon!
