A trip back to Paris

Inspired by a posting from

Have not been posting for a long time but the recent post by Theadora Brack reminded me of my last trip to the City of Lights.  Her blog posting had many fun pictures and interesting story as always.

A Pom-pom Romp Through Old Parigi

But her last picture in that post reminded me of a picture I took close to Montmartre, very close to that stunning church …or more precisely Basilica of Sacre-Coeur.

Anyway thought I would pay homage to her posting with this picture I took …


Check out her posting and then compare THE PROOF IS IN THE PUFFING  picture with that below.  She could be long lost twin with the lady in my picture.







Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

The harbour always offers new challenges and opportunities for capturing light.   The setting and rising sun deliver great views with less definition but still tell their story in a unique and interesting way.

The view from shore captures the moment when tranquility is broken by flight ended.

While the view towards the sea anticipates a voyage beginning 

The Woodsman Tavern – Worth the small trek across the bridge.

Crowded,but Vibrant ….Fantastic food and service

A little out of the way neighbourhood across the bridge, but worth the trek. Server was extremely pleasant and attentive. Despite the very busy atmosphere for a Friday night, we were seated promptly and never had to wait for service.  Would definitely re-vist the Woodsman tavern

Pork Rabbit

Great food starting with some west coast oysters followed by pork and rabbit pie for me and shank for my partner. Well prepared and served at the right temperatures.

Perfect Shank

Food on Wheels Portland

Maybe not a dump…but not superior food

Was looking forward to trying the food trucks that we had seen on Diners/Dives and have heard about for some time.  Perhaps it was the wrong weekend, or just maybe it has extended so far into every parking lot in the city, that we were expecting too much.   We tried a couple as recommended and found the food blasé and uninspiring.   But variety is definitely available so you can choose from almost every cuisine possible …but get to know the locals so perhaps you can improve on our experience.
