We have always gone to Remembrance Sunday services at Beaconsfield War Memorial with the Cubs and Beavers. This year we attended a service at Notre Dame organised by the British Legion based in Paris. We also had a day off school as here in France the 11th November is a holiday.
Here are some photos of us still wearing our 4th Beaconsfield Scarves (mum has got her 1st Maisons-Laffitte scarf already). It was very exciting to be inside the big cathedral for a service (although it was quite long, the service was longer but they made up for it by only laying 2 wreaths – in Beaconsfield there was always hundreds!!).
We got into Paris a little before so we headed to Jardin du Luxembourg for a play in the amazing play park and then walked to the cathedral to meet the others. After the service we were a bit hungry so we visited a little creperie for a late lunch (yum, yum). Then we went for a walk along the bank of the Seine as the sun went down. We walked all the way from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower. We watched the boats and played on the fun stuff along that stretch like mazes painted on the path and climbing wall things and climbing frames. It was loads of fun. Lots of people asked us about our uniforms too. And tourists wanted to take photos of us!!
