Paris en été - Paris-Plages

Paris in Summer

If you are staying in Paris for the summer (or visiting) 
you can have a Seine-side holiday replete with sand, 
beach chairs, misting fountains, volleyball, and more.  
Essentially, it is a beach vacation for the Parisians 
who do not leave during the grandes vacances  
and for the city's visitors.  

The dates for 2014 are July 20th through August 20th.  
Perhaps I am mistaken but these appear to be barges of sand!

Such a wonderful and yet strange thing to do Genie. The beach by the river.

Looks like the sand might be guarded, maybe to keep it from "migrating"? :-)

It would be interesting to see the creation of the beaches!

They do look like that, yes.

Looks to me like you captured the delivery of the 'plage'—good for you!
