Bricking It

New series, folks! Nothing particularly artistic about this pic, but it is the start of a new set of pics I've been wanting to get off the ground for a while.

So the thing is, all over the city, in various garbs and guises, we find the symbol of Paris: a proud sailing boat, being hassled by the humours of the Seine, but never, no never going down.

Like the proverbial car you're thinking of buying which suddenly starts appearing everywhere, as soon as you start thinking 'that Paris boat thing' (and keep your eyes reasonably open and interested, of course), you'll pretty soon start seeing watery apparitions of it stamped into your baguettes and swirling around in the froth of your café crème. Tear one of your macaroon burgers apart, and there she'll be, our little sail boat, ready to happily float down your very own river of loquaciousness.

So here's the first in the series, 'Sab's Top Ten Paris Boat Thingies', soon to be immortalised over at Paris If You Please, and in terms of superlatives, I'd say it's certainly both the biggest and the brickest version of the city's symbol I've yet come across. I'll love someone to outdo me though - anyone! Let me know about your fav version and I'll buy you a coffee next time you're in town.
