Lovelocks on the Pont des Arts, Part Three

C&C lovelock on the Pont des Arts

Paris

We walked to the Pont des Arts today, looking for our little cow lovelock.

November 2009

As I posted last week, we knew most padlocks were recently removed  but wanted to check it out ourselves. Sadly, our little cow is no longer there, though many other padlocks are.

May 2010

Most of the padlocks we saw today looked quite new.

The tradition continues!

  1. Priceless… Love the “Parisian shrug,” Carolyn!!! Guess people will continue to add their locks while the city continues to remove them…
    Good on them (the people) ….

    THANKS FOR BRINGING THE SUN OVER HERE!!!!

    Take care,
    Leesa

  2. Oh how sad your wonderful little lock is not there 😦 .. I am not sure how the bridge is being defaced though!

    Oh you have cheered Leesa up, with the SUN 🙂

  3. Thanks, Leesa and Anne! Appreciate the support — we have arrived in USA now and I hope Leesa is still enjoying that magnificent Paris sunshine — it matches your personality! 🙂

  4. I never did get there to check to see if it was there, earlier, and then a couple of weeks after you posted about it, indeed there was an article about how all of the locks are being removed and that there are possible plans to create another place where people can put the locks.

    I’m catching up a bit here! 🙂 It has been a while since I have been by. I’m glad to see that it looks like your visit went well. Safe travels to you, and next time you come to Paris, I hope it is for a longer stay and that we might have a blogger coffee klatch.

  5. Hi Karin! Thanks for stopping by and very interesting about a possible new ‘approved’ place for lovelocks — though from what we saw, the Pont des Arts will continue to be a favourite 🙂

    Appreciate your travel wishes and it would be great if our paths cross sometime in Paris!

    Cheers and take care.
