Monday Morning Mirth November 1, 2010

  Monday Morning Mirth  

la-bonne-2One of the most incredible things that’s been showered on us mere mortals by the Internet Etherettes is Google Maps.

Now those lovely pages are incredible for finding directions, looking up cool neighborhoods to move to (moi? Portland?), or just site seeing.

That’s right: Sight Seeing…

I’ve been strolling the streets of Paris using the maps and dragging the little golden man off the Zoom Ruler to walk around the neighborhoods looking for something close to my heard that I lost

I haven’t found it yet, but I did find this on the highest street in Paris:


This is a restaurant at 2 rue des Saules et 18 rue Saint Rustique in Montmarte around the Sacre Coure Basilica.

It popped up while I was exploring and thought it was so charming — so much more interesting to be sitting in a cafe surrounded by cinnamon-y geraniums wiling away the hours instead of running the like a hamster in a wheel.

Next up? Trying to find some really cool Regency houses down by the Thames in London…

Where’s your favorite most beautiful spots to visit? I want to take a walking tour…

    Not so far from home, but love to meander through the village of Cambria, Calif., get a latte and watch the waves crash and birds soar at the nearby beach. *sigh* Wish I was there now…

    We have a vacation home at The Sea Ranch about 2 hours from San Francisco , where our Giants just won The World Series. But…I digress. Sea Ranch is along the Mendocino Coast and the coastline looks like Ireland, including the sheep that cut our grasses. It is heaven, with walking trails all along the bluffs.
