    There’s always something magical about water. The stroll was much fun and felt cooler to us than it probably did to you. Have fun with friends and technology!

      It was 85 yesterday so probably would have been smarter to do our stroll about 7:30.

    Love the Place de la Republic photo. I was there on my last day and of course took a pic but did not know the name. Now I do!

    So many more places I want to see on my next visit!

    Oh the complexities of overseas travel, but you seem to manage it as well as possible. C’est la vie!!! We’re finally getting a little relief today, high 85. But back up next week. I agree- our earth is burning up. Some friends insist no global warming, only cyclical. It’ll change eventually. Yea, right.

      It was 87 here today. Just need some rain to cleanse the air!

    I love the urinal au femme! High time we are accommodated! Did you get to see any boats traversing the locks on the Canal? That is always fun. We love strolling the canal Saint-Martin from one end to the other and watching the low bridges open up for boats as well as the locks. Fun people watching!

      No, we didn’t get to see any boats go through the locks. We were at the “lower” end near us and want to go back around where they do the beach. Maybe we can do that together!

    Same here. No measurable rain in the cove in over a month.

    We were in Paris in March visiting our granddaughter who was in a study abroad program. We purchased tickets on line to ride down the canal and got there early but at the wrong pier. We waved as our boat took off without us. There are always travel mishaps!
    It was our anniversary, so we went out for dinner instead.

      Oh, my that’s too bad! But I hope the dinner was a pleasant substitute. Hope you’re enjoying the dogs in the cafés!

    We are good…just juggling. Andrew is excited…we are excited, but a little sad at the same time. We will miss him.

    Oh…can you explain the canal? I’m not familiar. More info please 🙂

      Google it! It’s just a waterway with all kinds of locks which leads to the Seine which eventually leads to the ocean.
