Walk

Viaduc des Arts is a wonderful walk on an old abandoned, elelvated train track. One Saturday it was so beautiful and sunny that we got outside for a walk there as it happens to be near our neighborhood.


One of the large bridges that crosses a grassed area and connects two sections of the walk.


They also built some new apartments here and the path dissects one of them.


Daffodils were blooming everywhere.


I love pink blossoms against a blue sky.

This is, again, a post I did a month or so ago. I’m in Provence right now mainly pulling weeds. I am only speaking French with Maurice but I worry that it isn’t helping my French much, mainly because we say pretty much the same things all the time-“How did you sleep?” “What’s for lunch?”-that sort of thing. I’m understanding most of what Maurice says but I often have to ask him to slow down or repeat something. I’m trying to learn a new French word, usually a verb, every day. My new word today is “verser” which means to pour. I had trouble remembering it until I connected it with the word glass-verre, as in I am pouring some water into the glass. That seems to be the best way for me to remember certain words.

One thought on “Walk

  1. How cool this is in your neighbourhood. We enjoyed walking along it last year.

    Cheers from England where nous avons versé le vin ce soir 🙂
