anniversary in paris

Our wedding anniversary happened to fall during our time in Paris, so we decided to go on a dinner river cruise. We selected our favorite boat, which we knew because while eating on the river, we had seen all of them pass by, and this one was by far the coolest-looking. Most were very modern, while this one had gas lamps and a vintage feel. When we saw that it got great reviews, and had a captain who had hand picked the decor from his travels around the world, we knew it was for us.

The first thing that sold Andrew on this boat was the Monkey King figurehead.

On the way to dinner.

Our view for dinner--the rain pattering on the glass made it especially atmospheric.

Passing the Louvre. The clouds parted just as the sun was going down, giving us amazing views.

Happy boy.

Happy girl. 

Coming up on the Eiffel Tower.

The captain timed it just right to go by the Eiffel Tower right when it was doing its hourly light show.

The boat had great funky overhead lights (and Maggie kept making Andrew pose for photos with the things we went by outside...)

The food was really good, and the views were even better. We couldn't believe it when we got back to the dock--the nearly three hours had gone by in a flash. Definitely a very memorable Paris experience!
