Canal Saint Martin

Here it is, January 1st, 2014. My 2013 sure went by quickly. I’m here at the home of my son in Switzerland where we “rang in the New Year”. Here is a post that I put together a couple of weeks ago:

The new hot area to either live in or just visit for a walk along the water, a cup of coffee or a meal is that around the Canal Saint Martin. On a pretty Sunday afternoon Maurice and I ventured out to explore a bit.

Photogenic bridges arch over the canal. If you haven’t seen the French movie Amelie, do so. One of these bridges is in the movie and you get a look at a lot of other places in Paris.

It’s always fun to watch a boat move through the locks.

Many cafes and coffee places abound. Most of them sell vegan or vegetarian fare.

It was a little chilly so Maurice and I stopped for hot chocolate.
