Paris beach

Can you believe that we just visited some fabulous beaches on the Atlantic coast and didn't even walk on the beach or dip our toes in the ocean? Crazy. So now we've returned to Paris and what did we do yesterday? We went to "Paris Plages." It's Paris' version of vacation beaches for those who can't leave the city. They close off a stretch of road along the Seine and truck in tons of sand. They install a few umbrellas and deck chairs and call it a beach. The "beach" is much smaller this year than last - but we still managed to find a place to catch some rays and play a game of chess.
There are plenty of games and animation for kids.
And of course lots of buckets and shovels for building sand castles
There's even a shower so that you can cool off when you get too hot.
But no swimming. So today we're going to try out one of the many swimming pools in Paris.
