Thursday Challenge—"barrier"

When you ride a boat along the Canal St. Martin,
in Paris,  you do it for the experience—not to 

get anywhere fast.  Those locks take their sweet 
time filling up to the proper level . . .

but eventually the gates open
and the barrier is breached.

  1. And the boat name adds such atmosphere. (I am sure you don’t need to click on the link.)

    So where did they bury ’er? On the other side of the Bois de Boulogne

    1. Oui—a very fitting name for a boat that glides right past the Hotel du Nord every day.

  2. that is another barrier.. i haven't come across many of them but i like it
