    You guys really are the energizer bunnies! I think your daughter is learning first hand why you and Bernie are in such good shape 🙂 Love the bodyguard photo.

    Bon dimanche à tous!

    Linda, these are wonderful photos, once again. Bravo to the photographer(s)! I loved seeing Shakespeare and Co. and remembering the day we went in and you urged me to ask them to place my book there. That’s been almost 10 years. I wonder if it has sold!? I’m so happy that you and Bernie and Natalie are having this time together in Paris. As always, thank you for sharing.

      The queue to get inside Shakespeare was so long, Natalie didn’t get to go in. The city is jammed with more tourists than I’ve ever seen which compromises the enjoyment in certain areas.

    We happened to cross a bridge on the Red Neck Rivera last week that had maybe 100 Love Locks on it. Why is it that you don’t like them? I know you’ve shown some bridges that had maybe too many of them. Bernie does like Secret Agent Man in the background. Good to see that they are cleaning up Eglise St. Germain, you had commented before that it needed a good cleaning. Another good day. Thank you

      The lovelocks were despised by the Parisians who felt like the tourists were jeopardizing the ancient bridges because of the weight. There were SO many that it was unsightly. Paris is after all their city and the tourists often run roughshod over much of it. You can’t imagine how many people are here right now. It’s hard to walk around in some areas. Yet, however, tourism does drive the economy. The locks were seen as very romantic and held great appeal for lovers. It started as a cute idea that went totally overboard.
