Day 4 – Tour de France

One of the reasons we are in Paris today is that I wanted to see a stage of the Tour de France. For the last two weeks, I have been indoctrinating Tilly and Nancy on the ITV3 highlights of the Tour so that they too would want to see it.

Initially, we were at the finish on the Champs Elysee and we could see what was happening earlier in the stage on the big screen there. I love the way they sip champagne on the road to Paris for instance. It got too crowded for the children so we moved to the Tuilleries gardens above the Seine and had a much better view of the six laps in Paris. Of course, there was another Cavendish win (and to think they doubted him earlier in the Tour).

We also went to the Bois de Boulogne and watched new version of The Italian Job (7/10). Tomorrow we leave Paris for a new destination.
