early morning with the ducks

This morning I left home with Eric when he went to work and had plans to walk to a park I've never been to on the east side of Paris, but I missed one of the streets I needed and ended up taking my usual route down towards the river. I ended up in the Tuileries gardens next to the Louvre, where I sat by a fountain and watched five baby ducks and their parents for awhile. There weren't many people there yet so it was really nice and I had my pick of the chairs around the water. I also gave directions to some tourists to the ticket line for the Louvre, half in French and half in English. I felt good about that. The statue is "Diane a la Biche."
