paris 21 july tuesday
the "beach" along the river seine
we traveled to a charming french village today without leaving paris!!!. the metro took us to butte aux caillis, a quiet quarter of paris with cobbled streets, attractive lamp posts and small art deco houses with fancy brick work decorative tiles and timbers. this historically working class district is a throw back to the past and quickly became the place we would like to live, if we lived in paris. a short walk up a hill and you are away from the noise and activity of the city – it feels and looks just like a small quaint french village in the country. it is fun to explore the many narrow and crooked streets. some have quirky restaurants, cafes and shops (no global chain stores). on one little colorful street are two compounds of town houses set around intimate and colorful court yards. the houses were once worker’s villas built to resemble traditional buildings in alsace and in russia. now they are highly desirable homes. on another street there are iron fenced brick houses in the art nouveau style and over each entrance way is a glass awning similar in style to the famous nouveau entrances to the metro.
in the center of the quarter’s square is an art nouveau fountain from which you can fill you can fill your cup or water bottle with natural spring water.
we made a stop in a “honey” store where we bought a piece of spiced honey cake ( bees flying everywhere in the store!!!) and then went to lunch at one of the quirky restaurants, with a convivial atmosphere, which was packed with locals. we dined al fresco at a small out door table. our lunch was delicious, the wine was excellent and the price was unbelievable reasonable. i had sweet grilled sardines (three of them), salad and a potato casserole with cheese and cream. neal had a huge pot of sweet and tiny mussels prepared in a new way (for us), catalan style – which meant that there was a heap of piperade on top and the potato casserole. bread of course and salad and a half liter of a fruity, but dry, sauvignon blanc. total cost of the meal 23 euros.
then it was off to the beach (yes, in paris).
summer transforms paris, or at least parts of the city, into the riviera…..the cityscape dons greenery, the seine riverside and car thoroughfares become car-free resorts. the paris plages (paris beaches), now in its seventh year, started this week and will be around for the next four weeks.
the big beach runs on the right bank from pont de sully to the louvre museum, about three kilometers. you are on the beach with historic paris all around you. we listened to jazz while watching boat traffic on the seine and looking at the ancient buildings on cite. we sat on the narrow sandy beach (about 15 feet wide) while kids built sand castles and adults took in the sun (it was close to 90 degrees). in other locations there are floating swimming pools in the river, wall climbing, boules, ping-pong and the like. there are refreshment stands and different kinds of restaurants. sprinklers are strategically placed to cool you off. porta-potties are concealed behind green screens. the theme of this year’s plage is ecology so the color is green and there are potted plants and palm trees in huge green pots.
we also visited the plage close to the butte. this area by the river is very modern with large-scale contemporary office buildings, a major sports complex and the national library. this was a smaller and quieter beach anchored by a large floating swimming pool with people in swimsuits – speedo type for the men of course (no nude or topless bathers to be seen on any beach). there were also cafes with large groups of friends enjoying themselves over glasses of wine and beer, wi-fi areas and free newspapers to read or books to borrow. along this stretch of the river different types of boats are moored from an old lighthouse boat to a chinese junk and in the evening they become cafes with a variety of musical shows.
the third plage area, la villette, which we haven’t visited yet, is suppose to have water sports like kayaks and rowboats.
interestingly, paris plages, which cost the city millions of dollars or euros, is not done for the tourists. in fact most of the people who visit it are locals, as we can affirm by watching the many families and couples out for a day on the beach. it stays open until midnight and opens at 8AM (many museums do not open until noon).
then we returned to our neighborhood for a coffee for me and a pastis for neal before doing our daily shopping. at the cheese store, alexandra, (who we have become friendly with), recommended a reblochon to go with the pates and salad that we were going to have for yet another simple dinner. she explained that the cheese is made from the milk of three different breeds of cows. never knew that different cow’s milk tastes different. it was a creamy cheese with a slightly nutty after taste –
Pound Street Sligo (Ruins) (4)
A VISION FOR HOLY CROSS (Sligo).
When mellowed hues at evening's close spread o'er the distant meadows.
And on Slieve Felim's mountain top, the sunlight fades from view,
When furtive creeps the gathering haze of mystic wreathed shadows,
Like diamonds shine the earlier stars, that spangle heaven's blue.
Oft may the pensive wanderer, beside each moulded arch
That props the rained abbey walls with buttresses so grey,
list to the magic prelude notes, as forth in solemn march.
Long trains of spectral churchmen move unseen at close of day.
The massive turret stands as yet, where ravens find their home,
And ivy clings around its walls, the river murmurs by ;
The nave though roofless screens a choir, not altarless become,
Amid tall trees, the lightest breeze most musical doth sigh:
When swells that choral anthem, with tower-bells loud pealing,
Sweet carillons adown the vales slow lingering chime and last,
Then may the mind, through fanc3r's maze, touch every chord of feeling,
And bring from olden times remote some echoes of the past.
Man hath a mission of his own, and at a distant time
Must yet redeem the rapine made upon this noble fane.
One, whose broad lands and golden hoard may fittingly combine
To rescue from their ruined state those fragments that remain,
Shall feel inspired again to raise a pent-roof o'er those aisles,
And rest the spandrel joists against the pointed gable walls
Again the pattering brumal rain may drip adown the tiles,
And sunbeams pass through coloured glass, o'er richly fashioned stalls.
Then once again the Culdee strain shall rise at early morning ;
The Matins strophe and antistrophe, the Lauds, with psalm and hymn,
Shall roll in cadence grand and sweet from floor to oak-ribbed awning ;
At intervals of forenoon shall the chapter hours begin.
Then surpliced friars, in ordered ranks, at evening shall intone
Their vesper song and compline psalm, when sinks the setting sun.
And while the pendant midnight lamp lights aisles so dim and lone,
Their eyes shall close, in blest repose, toil, prayer and vigil done.
While song and prayer, in upper air, as if from Angel bands,
Pour down in holiest harmonies rejoicings of the blest,
A grand refrain, must wake again, o'er wide and fertile lands.
Strains plaintive, slow and solemn, when sons of labour rest.
Then like that dazzling brightness, as the sheeted lightning’s glance
Athwart the midnight gloom, but with mild effulgent gleam,
The distant canopy illumed, and 'mid the light advance
Those monks of yore, unseen before, now clear as noontide beam.
Around the concave vault of blue, stars paling with a lightness
Of rays celestial, halos crown those habitants of bliss;
And years may speed the course of time, ere visions of such brightness
Shall cease to pour from spirit world its glorious sheen on this.
Until the patron lord shall reach his span of life decreed,
And Heaven recalls the pilgrim to that brighter, better goal,
Which cares foreclose, ambitious aims, when happily succeed
Those fadeless joys, saints enraptured deem true pleasures of the soul.
One summer night, in robes of white, while mortals still repose,
That Culdee train of spirits blest shall throng around his grave ;
And heard again, one requiem strain, such tones for ever lose
From upper air to human ears. Yet, still within the nave,
The aisles and choir, so well restored, so loved and cherished long,
In cloistered life, to distant age, those brethren of that school,
At stated times shall sweetly chant their Mass and sacred song,
Regarding well their chastening vows, their rubric and their rule.
Note: The people living in immediate contiguity to Holy Cross Abbey entertained an idea, that at some remote period, this religious establishment shall be restored to its original purposes, by the lord of the manor, and that it must so continue to the end of time. Certain proposals were actually made by its Protestant proprietor, the Rev. Dr. Wall, T.C.D., at no distant period, to have it restored for purposes of Catholic worship, but the expenses necessary to be incurred were deemed too great for prudential considerations, in reference to this matter. To the gentleman in question, every admirer of antiquarian taste in objects of ancient architectural art must feel indebted, for a correct although partial effort to preserve Holy Cross Abbey from the slow, wasting process of ruin and decay.
