Photo Du Jour : L'Ile-St.-Louis

The Ile-Saint-Louis is one of the two islands in the center of Paris. There were originally about seven islands, but over the centuries they were consolidated to two.

The north side of the Ile-Saint-Louis, seen from the Pont de Sully.

Saint-Louis is the smaller of the two, more residential, and home to the famous ice cream maker, Berthillon. I had a cone of coconut ice cream last Wednesday night after dinner while taking a walk around the island.
