    Despite feeling weary from a whirlwind day exploring Paris, the moment we settled onto the cruise and it began its journey, fatigue melted away. The experience was truly remarkable. Illuminated landmarks appeared majestic, enhancing the city's allure. Though the sound system was lacking, passing beneath historic bridges added to the appeal.

    Took a boat from the jetty opposite Musee d'Orsay along the Seine and into the Canal Saint Martin and the first of its multiple lock gates. Views along the river are always great, but I'd never been along the canal. Great commentary added to this wonderfully interesting trip. The covered sections of the canal and the history behind this were fascinating. The later sections of the boat ride (I took the 1 way trip) were through parts of Paris I hadn't visited before, so a few hours after getting off of the boat led to more happy wandering and exploring. I would recommend this trip.

    We did a circuit of Lac Daumesnil with its two islands of Bercy and Reuilly. The two islands are joined by a bridge but the only access point is via Ille de Reuilly. There are boats for hire at one end of the lake. Le Grand Pagode was closed for visiting. We stopped at an old-fashioned restaurant on Ille due Reilly for drinks - Chalet des Iles Daumesil - which was quite pleasant and also enjoyed the Temple Romantique de Ille due Reilly which has a grotto underneath. It was a pleasant and interesting walk. I gather that this lake may also be considered part of the Bois de Vincennes.

    We pass through here often on the way to Marche Joinville, (see review), we love this open spance of water it adds to the beauty of the canal, it is very popular with hire and rowing boats, especially on the weekends.

    Directly in front of the palace is the Grand Basin, a large octagonal pond upon which we have seen (during a summer visit) model boats being sailed. There are the iconic, green park chairs, surrounding the pond, which there are plenty of, however it does get busy around lunch time, we love the ones that recline.
