We left Normandy and headed back toward Paris. A couple of hours on the road and we arrived in Versailles. First we broke for lunch and then met back up at the Palace. The gate around the Palace was recently restored and glistened, even against the sun-less sky.
The Palace was full of people from all nations and at times almost impossible to move. We did have a Tour Guide, which was nice, as she pointed out things we might not have noticed. That weekend there was a modern art opening, we had a sneak preview of some of the exhibits as the artists were installing that day.
