The barge we will cruise on for one week. It holds just three couples.

Before departing Paris for the barge (Apres Tout) we had one last lunch. We decided to go Big Time so we had lunch at the Ritz Hotel in Paris. WOW what a treat that was.

Lunch at the Ritz Hotel - Sliced smoked salmon over a bed of celery root. FANTASTIC

Lunch at the Ritz Hotel - Cynthia had pate - the rectangle on the left side of the plate is the pate.
