Boats at Rest, Canal St-Martin

I passed this boats-at-rest scene on the lower Canal St-Martin while walking to the Gare de Lyon from Bastille. I've always it an under-appreciated element of Paris, all these charming boats that you find moored right in town. (Most people only see the giant bateaux mouches on the main part of the Seine.) On a sunny day like this one, people were picnicking and suntanning on the grassy park running alongside the water.
