Overwintering It

Summertime would find these shores swarming with salsa dancers and sultry happenings of all sorts.

Windy winter is a different story, with only the occasional shady figure scuttling towards one of the riverside party boats without the slightest intention of spending more time outside than is strictly necessary.

For myself; well don't ask why, but I was reading a series of panels detailing the reacquisition of some formerly industrial areas of the left bank to create a continuous walk along the Seine right through the city.

Having said that, they're also in the process of revamping the old dock areas and assigning more and more cargos to barges, or 'soft transport', as they call it. One vessel charged with gravel, for example, can avoid a whole fleet of lorries from thundering through Paris with all the noise and pollution that involves.

For the time being though, with some exceptions, the outerlying arrondissements still harbour some pretty spooky and less than inviting riverside experiences, to sample at your own risk...

And why not...
