Toward the end of my walk

There are places along the right bank where the expressway runs at street level, diving below bridge approaches and rising up again on the other side, places where the road lanes run under the street above, and still others where the lanes run at river level. At this point on my walk, the roadway disappeared beneath the street for a while.

The roadway has turned underground and the pedestrian path narrows alongside a ramp up to the street. That's the Pont des Arts in the background, and if you look closely you can see the Eiffel Tower off in the distance.

The pedestrian promenade along the river continues, but I climbed up just beyond the Pont des Arts and headed toward the Cour Carrée at the Louvre. It was getting to be time to freshen up at the hotel before meeting my friends for a drink.

For those of you keeping score, this photo is out of order. This spot on the walk comes before where I was for yesterday's post about the Pont des Arts.

  4. Did you notice those new rental bikes that you can leave anywhere? They are Chinese with big red panels (?) instead of spokes. Have you tried any? Next visit I need to walk this promenade you've been on!
