The heat was getting to me yesterday. So I took a little stroll around the Seine near Ile St. Louis, then headed over to the Tuileries. Some locals had the same idea; I had some company along the Seine. But not too much, and no tourists that I spotted.  I almost felt bad for taking photos.

Ah, and then, the heat suddenly broke, a cool breeze came in, and everyone’s mood lifted. Including mine. There are few annoyances in life that won’t melt away with some time pondering with your legs dangling over the Seine and walking around the gardens of the Louvre, taking photos in the sweet light. Paris, I love you again.
