Life | Just Around the River Bend

This was almost definitely my favourite day of the entire holiday. Last time we went to France (four years ago) we went here, St Guilhem et Desert, a little town right up in the hills, and this year we decided to revisit. It's a gorgeous little medieval town, with the quintiscental town square and mini shops and cafes. After a little wonder and some lunch we popped a little down hill for some canoeing. Or kayaking, I can never tell the difference.

The scenery was breath taking, it was in the middle of this huge gorge, surrounded by trees and hills, just the perfect setting really. Dragonflies were everywhere, literally landing on us quite happily, I made a little friend called Perry (above). I have to admit, I am rubbish at paddling, Adam did have to do most of the work, but I just don't have the arm strength to do it... Plus I was busy taking photos - much more important!

It was a lovely lovely day. We had great fun splashing around, with my Dad photobombing us (thanks Dad, love you too) and generally relaxing. I would highly recommend you going if your near, we had to drive about an hour to get there, but it's well worth it. We used a company called "Rapide Canoe", they were a bit useless down by the river but hey, didn't spoil it for us in the slightest.

Have you ever been canoing? What was the scenery like?
