Whilst Clare was writing today's blog, I was off in search of some snacks to bring back to the hotel. After steak for lunch, neither of us felt like another meal but there was the occasional hunger pang, so we thought that tracking down some cookies or something like that would be handy. Whilst I was out, I noticed that the basilica was illuminated, so I gathered Clare's phone (it takes much better photos than my camera) and popped out to get the odd image.
The sight I saw coming out the door confirmed that this would be a worthwhile mission:
And it didn't take long to establish that more than the basilica was illuminated:
The side of the rivers looked lovely too:
The cathedral looked pretty too:
Especially with the basilica behind it:
The bridges played their part too:
All in all, that was a pleasant way to spend 15 minutes
