June 24, 2009: Giverny

We had great weather today for our trip to Giverny. We started the day with a stop at the Orangerie, a small museum, close to the Place de la Concorde, where some of Monet's huge waterlily canvasses are displayed. While there, we watched part of a great film about Monet's work at his home in Giverny. Then, we hopped on the Parisvision bus and went to Giverny, where we saw "the real thing" --in particular, Monet's Japanese garden. I think everyone enjoyed it very much. It was a bit hot, but that is better than rain. Speaking of which, I think we're due to get rain tomorrow afternoon and it will continue until the end of the trip. I'm posting a few pictures from our day in Giverny.
