Un bateau sur la Seine



Do your weekend plans involve a boat?

I would like to be in this boat, on this river,
in the good weather promised this weekend...

Ah, Paris!


Pont Saint-Michel

No boat for me this weekend... I´ve never seen Paris from the river...

Hello Genie:
How strange that today's image should feature a boat on the river. Only yesterday we had a day out by train to Esztergom where we sat by the Danube, very wide at that point, and looked towards Slovakia on the opposite bank and watched as a river cruise boat, the first we have seen this season, made its way downstream.

And I just stepped ashore from a ship on the Rhine. Such a wonderful way to see the beautiful scenery...I'd like to be on that boat too!

The red and turquoise colors are eye-catching. No boat plans but it would be nice to be on either Lake Michigan or Superior today, altho it's a mite chilly for that activity.

Yes, our weekend plans involve a boat... We will be sailing near Seattle on a gorgeous spring day this afternoon... Great shot, Genie. Following la Seine sur une peniche would not be bad either! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Speaking of boats, I've never eaten on any of the boat restaurants along the Seine. Have you?

No boats for me this weekend—but if I had my druthers, I'd be right there with you on this boat, on this river!

I would like to be there, too. You asked about how I got my name. Mother and daddy tried 3 times to have a boy. I was the third, they said NO MORE and named me Eugenia Hornot. Daddy’s name was Eugene Marseilles Hornot. He was born in New Orleans and was first generation US born. I loved his name do much I named my third child after him....Eugene Marseilles Hornot Robinson. Guess it is pretty obvious I am of my French heritage. Daddy spoke French fluently. the other genie

A boat? No. Both feet on dry land.
