Square du Vert-Galant

If you look at my banner photo you will see this square taken from Pont des Arts in summer.  This narrow piece of land on the western tip of Île de la Cité 
looks much like the bow of a ship in the middle of the Seine
and is a beautiful, quiet retreat on this January day. 


It was named for the dashing 16th century king of France, 
Henry IV, known as the lusty gallant!
