      I think it started in 2007 or 2008 and it was so fantastic then. Still fun but not nearly as amazing. People used to make awesome sand sculptures and the kiddies loved to play in the sand. There was a huge swimming pool right beside the river with blue and white “cabines” or changing huts similar to the Riviera. So glad we got to see all of that. It’s very interesting to us that many local Parisians viewed the beach as a socialist endeavor offering a free vacation to people who cannot afford to actually go to a beach during the summer. I think it has morphed into much more acceptance as just a fun place to go now.

    Yes, with mask mandate. I know of at least one SS class “rezooming.”

    Thanks very much Linda. Love the graffiti!!!
    A few years ago I saw a narrow barge close to Manchester, England that was named “Crimson Tide.”

    Linda, I tried to send you a photo of “Paris Beach” from WWII. Dudley had a photo taken by his dad that he thinks is the same area. I’m not techie enough to get the photo here. I posted it on Facebook. Bernie would know.

    We always enjoy all your posts.
