After our visit to the Cluny Museum and lunch, Lisa and I headed toward Notre Dame, a short distance away. It was a bit chilly but the sun was out and it was great to be outside.
Here’s a selection of what was for sale. Lisa, being a New Jersey girl, bought one to try out but she said that it was too baguette like, not dense and heavy as she is used to. They had cheese cake there too.
You find this on the bridge behind Notre Dame. Lisa is starting a campaign to make it illegal to do this. The bridge sides are starting to collapse from the weight of the locks, the rust that forms is damaging and all of the keys thrown into the Seine don’t help the water. At first I thought it was rather charming but it does seem to be getting out of hand. People are there now to take photos of the locks more than looking at what is around them-that would be Notre Dame in this case. Lisa even heard a guide tell his clients that the Pont des Arts is called The Bridge of Locks.
