After my refreshing drink, I headed out again to look for some lunch. I walked along the rue Saint Dominique looking at restaurant menus, but nothing spoke to me. Until I got to the end of the street. There was an old favorite: le Champ de Mars, a great café very close to the Eiffel Tower. The terrace was sunny and the umbrellas were out. I sat down.
Lunch was a big mixed salad and some nicely chilled white wine. Yum. After lunch I still had time for more walking before meeting my cousin Mark and Julie at the Rodin museum. I decided to head up to the river on the Avenue Rapp and walk back toward the Esplanade des Invalides. On my way I was treated to glimpses of the tower rising up above the buildings.
