The next day, a Friday, we decided was the day for the Sainte Chapelle. The Metro took us almost to the entrance, and we decided to see the Conciergerie as well on a double ticket to avoid a long line. Actually, it was my cane that brought us in ahead of a medium line. The lower chapel has really beautiful gothic stonework, all painted in primary colors. A spiral stone staircase took us up to the main chapel with its gorgeous stained glass. Now Rick Steves' book recommended an overcast day to see the stained glass at its best. This we had, but both Carolee and I had been there before on bright days, and it was way better. Another failure for Rick Steves. Instead of an altar there was an Italian harpsichord all bundled up, waiting for a high-priced evening concert of the Four Seasons.

The last day in this reporting period was a day of rest. Went out only for groceries.
