Our morning promenade of discovery in Luxembourg had been remarkable, and we were eager to resume the journey.
It was time for a stroll in the gorgeous Vallée de la Pétrusse. As we descended from the vantage viewpoints overlooking the valley, we passed Rue St. Ulric and then, Rue St. Quirin. The verdant valley gave us an entirely different perspective of the city. The walls of the ancient fortifications rose on either side. The various shades of green glistened in the sunshine. Families walked by (enjoying the weekend break). Kids shouted in glee while riding the miniature train. We ambled along the path, settled down on a bench to watch the world go by, and then, walked some more. The Vallée de la Pétrusse was a beautiful green world.
We gazed up at the viaduct and then, proceeded to walk below the Adolphe Bridge (Ponte Adolphe). An uphill path led us out of the pretty valley and to the Place de Bruxelles.
From the Place de la Constitution, we gazed down at the Valley one more time, a welcome expanse of green, a beautiful place to spend a few hours.
Our day ended at the lovely Parc Ed Klein, beside a fountain and a little pond. Lying on the carpet of grass, gazing up at the blue sky, talking about things that matter, and those that do not matter at all.
