Esplanade de Quinconces By Night

The Esplanade's twin towers, "commerce"
and "navigation," which pretty well sum
up Bordeaux's history

The arc of the Garonne (later, the Gironde estuary), with
Bordeaux on both sides, for miles

Looking back from the Footpath, to the two
towers and the Monument to the Girondins
in the distance

Navigation, pointing the way

Our stroll took us back to the Esplanade and down to the river Garonne and views from designer Tadashi Kawamata's "Footpath" bridge out over the river.
