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

  1. LeeAnn thanks for visiting Carole's Chatter - we visited Montbazillac a couple of years ago - lovely setting but the wine was too sweet for us! Have a great week. Cheers from Carole's Chatter

  2. Roger & I certainly enjoyed our trip down the Dordogne on such a vessel when we stayed with you last month. Have fun.
