I like this shot of this elegant bridge Bernard and I can even see some pretty girls crossing it too ~ Best wishes ~ nick

But it's true and you're right! I had not seen those girls who cross the bridge! LOL! There are great places to swim in the river before and after the city! But right now, it's colder than normal... It snowed in the mountains above this city...

Cheers, Bernard

I remember an English kid's song :

London brigde falling down, falling down, failling down....my fair lady.

Its seems this France bridge is very secure.

Cheers, Jeff

There is a weather phenomenon happens from time to time here in southern France. The clouds are gathering against the mountains north of the city and it rains a lot in these mountains. So the river is much swollen and the level rises very high for a few hours! There are floods, lower in the valley... When this happens, from Paris the weatherman says it will be a Cevennes mountains phenomenon! So this river is known throughout France. And this bridge is great because it is very strong!

Cheers, Bernard
