Le Sacre Coeur Glorius

This Cathedral is probably my favorite landmark in Paris. I have a vivid memory of the first time I saw it and it still strikes me with awe when I see it. At night, the place is lit up and is quite striking against the night sky. I made two trips today to see it; one during the day, one after dinner. There were way too many stairs, but the trip was worth it.

Leigh and I saw it for the first time together in 1989. I've not been able to recapture the profound amazement I felt the first time I viewed it, but I still remember the feeling. On that evening, it looked like heaven.
