a nice place to live

I took a brief stroll through the streets of Paris

The Paris that is on the Grand River.

Paris is a typical small town in Ontario

I wanted to show off the businesses and the building styles, but the cars were in the way. I actually like the reflection on this car roof

from one of the bridges you can get a good view of the back of the buildings on Grand River Street 
a few of the colourful shops 
We'll have to take their word for it that it is a nice place to live, but it is certainly a nice place to visit!

  1. What a lovely surprise, and yes- it surely does look like a nice place to visit! Cars annoy me to death sometimes. I want to blow a whistle and get them all the hell outta there, but you're right! It's a cool reflection. Many thanks for your company :)

    1. at least the roads in most of our small towns are much wider than the ones in England's small towns!

  2. The buildings on the river remind me of a small town in Oregon. Great photos. It looks like a lovely walk. I adore small towns.

    1. there is another town I plan to feature soon - co-incidentally also on the Grand River - that has buildings built right up against the river like this.

  7. I have never been to Paris, now I want to go. It reminds me bit of Fergus.

    1. It is like Fergus. I guess the small towns along the Grand River all share the same characteristics. I remember having to drive my mother to Mary Maxim's when I was a teenager and living in Toronto. I didn't appreciate it nearly as much as I do now.

  8. How very pretty. Looks a bit like small towns in new Zealand. And I wouldn't mind living in one of those buildings with a balcony over the river.

    1. Yes, if you're losing out on a backyard, then a river view would be a nice compromise!
