When life hands you lemons ...

The Seine River in Paris, France has been overflowing into parts of the city recently due to weeks of heavy rains.

Some kitesurfers made the most of the unfortunate situation recently when a soccer field in Bagatelle near the Longchamp Racecourse became flooded this weekend.

Flooding in Paris peaked this weekend and is expected to begin receding this week. December and January were the wettest period in 50 years in France.

While thousands of citizens have been impacted and some 242 towns have incurred damage, it is uplifting to see people make the most of an unfortunate situation.
