Today a few photos that make me smile. 14 Juillet, I spent on the Pont de Grenelle, but we passed the Pont de Mirabeau on our way there. Peter and I staked our claim on this bridge in great anticipation of the fabulous fireworks to come at the Eiffel Tower in celebration of Bastille Day! We waited for quite a while in order to keep our front row seats. It was well worth the wait as you've seen here and here.
Well today, our friend Louis is hosting the first in his new Serie du Pont de Dimanche. I don't have many left, but I did have this one that I've not shared. I thought I'd also post the Statue of Liberty, found on the Pont de Grenelle. She is 3 years younger than "our" Lady Liberty. The plaque that commemorates these events reads: IV Juillet 1776 and XIV Julliet 1789 ( the storming of the Bastille). I think Peter picked the perfect spot for us to celebrate Bastille Day!
UPDATE: Merci to my Paris expert Peter, who kindly emailed and helped me get this all straight. The bridge above is the Pont de Mirabeau. The bottom photo is the Pont de Grenelle where we watched the fireworks! I guess this should count as two bridge posts in one! Sorry for the confusion but you should be use to it by now! :)
