Paris breaks time capsule with Red Breated Goose

Well well, so this time last year I was enjoying one of our best ever Paris breaks with a smart hotel in the Marais and hot summer sunshine. I was lucky to have recovered just enough to be able to walk about quite a lot and really make the most of our four day break in Paris as well as enjoying the Bateaux Bus trips on the river Seine. As well as the usual walking around the city enjoying cafe and restaurant life, we also managed to fit in a trip to see the art installation at the Grand Palais. A giant sculpture by Anish Kapoor, the designer of the London Olympics site Orbit Tower, filling most of the enormous exhibition space just off the Champs Elysee's.

But first, look at the handsome and rare visitor we had on the local duck pond, or rather Lake Alexandra as it should be called – a Red Breasted Goose no less! And a wild one too, I'm sure.
