A lovely day to trade

Three piraguas drop their sail, ship their oars and glide up to the small dock in Charenton-le-Pont. One man from each boat is left as guard while the remaining crew head to the nearest tavern for food and drink. Next day is market day so they set up a small stall and sell a few trinkets and some fish from the River. They await the next night which is to be a new moon.
