Remember that old tune from the 50’s that was done by everyone who was anyone including Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie ?
I have no idea where they were finding “chestnut blossoms” or the “charm of spring”. We were there last month and it was barely above freezing! I get the line about a “warm embrace”, when you factor in the wind chill that day any embrace would not only be warm. It would be welcome, even if it came from a hungry grizzly bear. Which, of course, it wouldn’t, because grizzly bears are smart enough to know it was to frigging cold to do anything but hibernate.
Please disregard the last two paragraphs. I’ve just been informed that Ella and the Count weren’t singing about the world famous Paris Ontario. Apparently there’s a town in France also called Paris.
We were tricked into going. We’ve driven through the place a couple of times and both times said their downtown needed a good exploratory visit, it was a beautiful sunny day and we felt the urge to go for a drive and there roads that go from here to there. Coincidentally Paris ONTARIO is the home of a very large craft store called Mary Maxim.
Also, by coincidence,we visited that store, but not before we froze numerous body parts going for a hike along the Grand River and exploring the downtown core.
We both enjoyed our visit to the store. Marilyn enjoyed the huge selection in Mary Maxim (they do have everything crafty) and I enjoyed the fact that it was warm in there.
Anyway, back to downtown:
While we were exploring their cute little town we found a park that overlooks the Grand River called Cobblestone Common. While there I shot a 360 photo.
