Simple pleasures in Paris.

Anybody wishing to sail a model yacht on the ornamental boating lake in the Tuileries can hire one by the half hour from this gentleman. The poles are provided to fetch them back. I am not sure when this pastime was first started but I believe that Parisian boys have been indulging in this simple pleasure for generations. Jardin du Luxembourg also offers the same service.
