For our final evening together we gathered at a downtown restaurant (La Fermette Marbeuf), for a terrific French dinner.
Following dinner we headed toward the docks near the Eiffel tower and boarded a barge to set sail on a night cruise down the Seine River.
With music playing over the sound system or a handheld speaker to listen to the guided tour, we all enjoyed seeing Paris by night. If we weren't impressed by the city by then - this cruise certainly put us over the top! Under the bridges, past the Louvre and Notre Dame, the lights were brilliant and there couldn't have been a better conclusion to our journey.
On the way back to the hotel, our driver took us on a loop to see all the sites we had seen by day in their evening splendor. Most of us gathered in the hotel bar for a nightcap, to reminisce about all the things we've enjoyed on the trip and enjoy each other's company (and singing talents!) some more.
