Bateaux à Voiles

Here are the colorful sailboats for hire by 
the pond in the Tuileries Gardens.

I actually took these pictures on a very cold
day in February, but the boat man was doing
a brisk (sorry) business all the same.

  1. This looks like a cheery way to spend a cold day in February!
    & I love how you've cropped the colorful sails in your first photo too.

  2. One of my favorite spots! Indeed, my favorite photo from France was at this very spot! I wonder if it's the same boat man?! These photos are just fabulous!

  3. Cool capture. Must be fun to watch those colorful boats. Glad you decided to share your photos on Orange you glad it's Friday. Thanks for joining and I hope to see you again next Friday. Have a great weekend Alexa.

  4. Great those colorful sails

  5. Terrific colors. I'd love to be there no matter the season. Thanks for playing along today. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

  6. Such fun colors for sailing in the pond on a winter day!

  7. These boats always bring a smile to «Louis'» bovine mug... This image reminds him of the boats at Jardin du Luxembourg.
