Bassin de la Villette - la vie quotidienne

Bassin de la Villette
This is a scene far from the tourist crowds of Paris,
but is a favorite spot for the Parisians on a Sunday afternoon.
Pétanque (more games than I could count),
picnics among friends,
multi-generation families out for a water-side stroll,
children at play riding trotinettes...
There is something here for everyone.
