Water Lilies

More biking, you say? Why not? Yesterday (Friday) was another one for the books (as all vacation days in Europe tend to be) . We started with our first move of the journey - did I really pack that much? And headed off to a new part of Paris. After getting settled we set off for Giverny, outside the city via train - destination Water Lillies. It was nice to have some downtime where there were no metro transfers or complicated routes, just a straight shot to our destination. 

Our train arrived in Vernon where we grabbed a lunch to go and rented bikes to head 3 kilometers out to Giverny. I cannot recommend the quick sandwich and bike rental enough, it's been a fun way to see the sites and cities.

The path to Giverny provided a wonderful view into the countryside laying out just along the hillside with a view of the valley. We ate our lunch at one of the many benches lining the streets of Giverny and set off through the winding canals of Monte's garden. Thankfully, the ominous clouds held off their fuery, giving us just enough time for our adventure and the trip back home before the rain set in.
