Today we are invited to have Lunch at Son and Valerie's house in Joinville Le pont which is located on the outskirt of Paris.  First stop Ile Fanac (Fanac Island).

Fanac island is a 10 acres island in the Marne located in Joinville-Le-Pont.  No cars are allowed inside the island and is accessible by stairs and elevator in the middle of the Joinville Bridge.

Rowing and canoeing is very popular on the Marne.
