we must carry it with us or we find it not

Sous Les Ponts De Paris.....



Beautiful Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris
with construction commencing in 1578.
....................
I love to sit in one of the alcoves along the side
observing the comings and goings of river life
whilst humming in my head the lovely lyrics of the
song made famous by Dean Martin

"How would you like to be
Down by the Seine  with me
Oh! what I'd give for a moment or two
Under the bridges of Paris with you"

Dear Dianne
Thank you for your lovely comment today! I've missed you all too, so it's great catching up on what you've all been up to.
I've just had an amazing chill out reading your posts over the last 6 weeks.
As you know Paris is 'the' destination for me and when I can't get there in person, the next best thing is your blog, for your incredible photos and stories!!
Viva "All Things French"!!!
Hugs
