I added in a link in yesterday's post- there are a number of places in Canada that have Beavertail outlets at least at some point during the year, so have a look if you missed it; perhaps there's a spot within a reasonable distance to you.
At her blog Paris Through My Lens this week, Virginia has been posting on the problem of these locks placed on the bridges of Paris since Wednesday. It's been awhile since I've shown this pic- the same thing is taking place here on the Corktown Bridge, a pedestrian bridge linking Centretown with the University of Ottawa.
As time goes on, I'm finding this habit to be more and more of a problem. People seem to have no regard for the eyesore that these are becoming, the possible damage the collective weight these things can inflict on a structure, or the fact that these bridges are not their private property that they're free to do with as they like.
