Back to bore you with a post about France. On two separate occasions we hired canoes for a trip on the Dordoyne. The Dordoyne is quite a fast running river and the current will take you if you don't want to paddle. We saw a group on people on a Dordoyne Safari with their canoes loaded with camping equipment (there are plenty of campsites dotted along the river). We canoed past chateaux and villages built into the rock faces, under stone bridges, through weeds and under trees
(I won't mention how Mollie and I were nearly decapitated as it may worry mum). There was a lovely breeze on the river to keep us cool and plenty of cafes and restaurants to stop at for refreshments. If you ever find yourself in this area I really recommend it as a fun way to pass a few hours.
