Canoë enfin

Canoeing through the Dordogne Valley has been one of the most-recommended, tourist activities since we arrived in Périgueux. Exactly seven months after arriving, with blue skies and perfect river levels, we finally got there today.

We started from La Roque Saint-Christophe and paddled our way down to Les Eyzies, a cute village with a very swish Museum of Prehistory built into the rock face (the Lascaux Caves and many other prehistoric sites are just a stone’s throw away).

We saw giant water rats, ran into a bridge pylon and sang Row Row Row Your Boat in rounds. Fresh air fun! Is it weird that I was constantly looking out for crocodiles…?

The second before we realised we were both taking photos and not steering away from that pylon! Bam.

And Les Eyzies is definitely worth an afternoon as well.

In other news, in preparation for cleaning out our Périgueux cupboards, Sarah threw us une soirée tartinable…aka a night of crêpes and left over condiments. Nom nom nom. I sure will miss this!
