Sept. 7, Wednesday-Deyrolle (an unusual store!), lunch at Joel Robouchon's in Saint Germain, and a walk in the Palais Royal gardens

A quiet day in Paris. On our way to a late lunch at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon (the finest food, but NOT the finest overall dining experience, and WILDLY overpriced), we happened upon Deyrolle - a historic taxidermy/shell/naturalist shop that's a huge surprise - a bit horrifying, but it draws you in like a zoo or aquarium. It appears in the latest Woody Allen film, "Midnight in Paris." Apparently, lots of their business is based on renting out the collections.
Before you take out a contract on our lives, here's their web site. Decide for yourself.

Palais Royal garden - gorgeous, top-line shops along the arcade. 

Beautiful children playing under the watchful eye of their nannies.

Note the ominous sky - but we got home before the skies opened.
