Now I could go on and on about the chemical and physical properties of water, as well as the importance of water to the makeup of our bodies. But that is not what I want to do because that is too obvious since I am a scientist. If you want the scientific info click on the underlined water above for the Wikipedia litany about water.
Instead I think I will show you some of the different sources of water I have seen during some of my travels. Click on all the pictures for more detail.
The Housatonic River runs through the town where I live. I wrote a blog about a bridge that spans the river on April 21st. This river is a great source of recreation in the State and the Western section of New England.

Great Brook is a source of babbling tranquility on the road where I live. It is always a pleasure to walk to its location and watch it meander and flow.

Last year had the experience of taking a river cruise in France on the Rhone and Saone Rivers from Arles to Chalone-sur-Saone. The cruise was on the River Royale a new boat in the Uniworld fleet. After the cruise I took a high speed train ride from Lyon to Paris for a
few days stay. I am going to share with you a few of the pictures I took along the way.
While on the Rhone we traveled through numerous Locks. Pictured above are the Locks near Viviers,

While in Paris we took a bus tour to the Chateau of Chantilly. Notice the moat around the Chateau.

Some of you who have been following my blogs know that Paris is my favorite city in the world. If I didn't live in the United States I would move there. So I'm ending with some pictures of Paris.
