Just after Bastille Day, we explored our French Heritage

at “Rue Lafayette” a french cafe on Lafayette Square

that serves chocolate croissants flown in from Paris.

You can bring your dog to the cafe!

(This is me, Jessie Hoagland, along

with my boy Mack and puppy Lucy)

Rent little sailboats at Rue Lafayette, and sail them

on the pond across the street in Lafayette Square.

Many stories were told about the geese and swans

that call the pond their home..

One family happened to be travelling to Europe later

that summer, and was inspired to sail boats as was

the original inspiration for the Rue Lafayette sailboats!

Here’s the link for Rue Lafayette, great destination

for croissants, cafe au lait, quiche and dog lovers.

Tell them Green Spiral sent you.
