Ca monte de plus en plus et si c'est beau en photo cela n'est pas rassurant pour les gens qui subissent

It is so that no one can ever swim. Sometimes you also have to rest.

Well, the ducks don't seem too troubled. I suspect that even they notice the disruption of their routines. The people surely do.

Even the ducks are trying to stay where it's dry!! :-) I love how the ripples on the surface of the water change as you go past the railing.
