Five go canoeing!

Yesterday, being Jane's birthday and a stinking hot day we decided to cool off with some watersport.

Down at Le Lac in Châtellerault single, double and triple canoes were available so we decided on adults in a double and 'children' in the triple...

Best to let the woman drive and paddle!

Absolutely loving it, Elizabeth decided to venture out alone!!!

After several trips around Le Lac we retired under the shade of a tree and had ice creams all round. It was a great afternoon, the canoe hire is free of charge and the ice creams are one euro each.

Le Lac amenities are open until the end of the school holidays and well worth a visit, just register your names as you enter the area and away you go...

The evening was completed with apero with our young neighbours.

Jane had a great birthday but sadly had to return to the UK this morning.

Wow! That sounds great! Amazing that the canoes are free.

I agree with Susan, it's amazing that canoe hire is free.
It looks like you had a great day!
