Happy Birthday Frank: Part 2!
Saturday night was our big celebration of Frank’s birthday – a dinner cruise down the Seine. (Friday was the Batobus, but we were taking it up a notch.)
We boarded the Bateaux Parisiens lovely Cristal and were met with champagne and amuse bouche.
As we started gliding down the river, we had 4 courses to choose from: Starter, Main, Cheese, and Dessert – each paired with wine.
We floated past the Louvre, Notre Dame, and finally to a more business district with high rises – then circled back to check out the other side – Musee d’Orsay, Invalides, all the way down to a model Statute of Liberty. French café music, including our favorite Edith Piaf, set the tone.
They even sang Happy Birthday to Frank and brought out a sparkling surprise.
We disembarked under the lights of our favorite Tower and practically danced all the way home – which may have been partially due to the champagne!
We know 85 will be a very good year.
