In June we were scheduled for a couple of days in Paris, followed by a week-long cruise down the Saone and Rhone rivers of France. Travel doesn't always go the way it is planned. The weather in Paris was mostly overcast and rainy. France had gotten so much rain during the spring and early summer that all the rivers were so swollen that the ships could not navigate or pass under the bridges. So, after arriving at our ship, which was not were it was supposed to be, we ended up sleeping aboard the ship and taking daily bus tours to progressively more distant sights that we were supposed to sail to. It was a very disappointing and exhausting trip.
But as a determined photographer, I believe that you can find, if not beauty, shots anywhere. So, I have put together a gallery that was the best I could do on this misadventure. Enjoy, and as always, please post your comments on the web.
