Parfait, et merci!
The old bridge is probably not so old as that.Do these pleasure boats use the locks or are they completely out of commission?I just love the cane and her canetons.A very busy bric-à-brac.Such a wonderful little car. I loved mine.A two-face chateau. I like this one better than the other.
If you look closely at the first photo, you can see the tour boat in the lock just behind the bridge.
Yes, I can see it through the middle arch. But who operates the lock? Can anyone do it?How did that car get in the island?
You need to do some research! I don't claim to know all that.
The current bridge at Saint-Aignan dates back to the 18th century. That's pretty old by American standards. I wonder if there was an earlier bridge and if it was a stone or wood structure. I haven't found any information about that yet.
Oh, I love that wall of plates!
I remember the blue-plate patio from a while back. I liked it then too.
Actually, I don't think the blue plate display is there any more.
Good thing you took that nice photo then.
Nice photo review, Ken! I love that 'blue plate special'! Do you understand that phrase, CHM?
No, Mary, I have never heard that expression before. Now I know what it means because I asked Mr. Google. Thank you. We do have low priced restaurants in France, but I don’t know if we have a name for them. And no “blue plate”. I have heard of a greasy spoon, but it’s not quite the same thing.
I think the blue plate special is the about the same thing as le plat du jour. Have a look at The Word Detective's web page about the blue plate special for some history.
Very interesting link. Thank you.
What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
