from paris, with love

The time finally came to say goodbye to Paris.

We decided to sweep back through using the boat bus on the Seine at sunset.

There was no one but us on the boat. It has got to be my favorite view of the city.

The river bus stops at several bridges along the way for entry and exit. With your pass, you can hop on and off whenever you like and pick up the next one at the top of the hour and on the half.

It might be Paris' best kept secret for getting around ... next to those city bikes, of course.

We passed under Love Lock Bridge.

This was on the wish list for the girls so we made a scheduled stop.

They came prepared with locks for the bridge.

We made our own family lock to leave.

Those locks are meant to symbolize love that can't be broken.

We locked it ... and then locked it again since that sad face needed a turn. So, I guess the love of our family is doubly eternal. That, or we are just good at second chances.

Each family member put their name. I think I'll always love Christian's handwriting more than anything.

We grabbed the boat back to our starting point.

Then said a sad farewell to a beautiful city over a quiet dinner.

I think we left a little piece of our hearts in Paris.
