Do you think this is a so-called bateau mouche? Is the term used generically as a name for all the tour boats that cruise the Seine in Paris? I just read on the web site of the Compagnie des Bateaux-Mouches, which is a brand name, that the company has a fleet of 15 boats in Paris. And the boat in my photo below has Bateaux Mouches painted on its stern. I think there are more tour boats on the Seine than 15, however. Il y a les Vedettes du Pont-Neuf, par exemple.
It's raining in Saint-Aignan this morning, and at least one weather site is predicting that we'll get a lot more rain over the course of the day. Hurray. Maybe I'll be found planting my collard patch tomorrow.
