the last day in paris

we were pretty inspired by our visit to the l'orangerie, so on our last day, we decided to go and see the real thing: Monet's gardens in Giverny. We ended up missing the first trail by just a minute or two, so we stopped by Sacre Coeur first, and then took the trail out to Vernon.

In Vernon, we rented bicycles and rode along a very scenic path with great views of the country side. right before we got to Giverny, we passed some bushes with the most amazing blackberries, which we picked and brought with us for our picnic. Monet's gardens were amazing and lovely, although it was a bit crowded for our liking. but we got some amazing pictures, and we climbed a hill at the edge of town and ate our bread, cheese and blackberries while looking over the whole countryside!
