Le Jardin Anglais & Fontainebleau Center [Walk #5]

Escaping Paris and going to visit Edouard’s family in Fontainebleau is always a pleasure.

This time, instead of walking through the Jardin de Diane, we decided to take a nice stroll around the “Jardin Anglais.”

Although it was a cold & dreary day, I was happy to find a lot of little creatures out and about.  Here are the things we saw:

After leaving the Jardin Anglais, we made our way into the center of town.

There, we passed:

1) A Harley Davidson rally (I was so surprised to see Harley’s in France! I thought they were too big and American to be over here!)

2) Saturday shoppers

3) A boulangerie that always has a line on the weekends. I’ve never been but I’m guessing this must be the place to go for the best bread in town.

And that pretty much sums up our walk.  Not super exciting, but relaxing and just what we needed after a busy week.
