a nice day for a boat ride..

It is going to be a lovely sunny day today, perfect for taking a boat trip on the Dordogne river.
Ever since we returned from our trip to New Zealand earlier in the year, I have developed an obsession for being close to water.
As much as I love the Dordogne and it's charming countryside, I do miss living near the sea and as the sea is a two hour drive away, the local lakes and rivers are the closest that we are going to get without spending along time in the car.
Canoeing is a fabulous way to explore the local rivers and cool off at the same time or for those who just want a bit of breeze, a trip on one of the old trading boats is a fabulous idea.
On the way it is possible to stop and visit a couple of chateaux and even a spot of wine tasting....
The fairy tale Chateau Monbazillac
This week is a busy week, tourist wise in France as we have a national holiday next Monday and then everyone prepares to go back to work/school.
Where ever you are, what ever you are going, I hope that you have a semaine fabuleuse.....
amicalement, Leeann x
