Steve=what lovely pix - and thanks for showing that it doesn't  rain all the time in the west of Scotland...

Well, yeah, we knew that. Sometimes it snows.

Then there are those rare, special, warm, still, dry days in summer, when it midges.

Charlie November, are the canoeing ones in the Gorges d'Ardeche? I took my grown up children canoeing there a few years ago, before they all got married and started producing grandchildren.

We did three days on the Tarn, then two on the Ardeche. The pictures are from two cameras, so they got a bit mixed up. The natural arch (Pont d'Arc) and the camping at definitely Ardeche, and the views upriver over the weir and downriver from the same high bridge on page 2 are the top of the Ardeche route, then there's evening drinks on the balcony behind the Auberge du Moulin in Ste Enimie, which is definitely on the Tarn, so I think that's the switch. The slide down a weir is on the Tarn, at the end of day 1, coming back to town. I think the square chalet in the background with a woman taking a drink of water in the front of a canoe in the foreground was the start of day 3 on the Tarn. Castelbouc is on the Tarn @44.3387654,3.4648814 and Pas de Soucy is the part of the Tarn we didn't do, between days 2 and 3.


Oh, yes. The boats! Two days in green boats then one in yellow boats on the Tarn, then red boats on the Ardeche. That's how you know which river it was. I'd forgotten.

 And we visited some amazing caves.


We went to the Tarn in 2012.

Not quite a sunset, about half an hour before, taken last night whilst on a bike ride along Cleveleys promenade.....this is why I love living near the sea. (It will possibly be sideways as taken in my phone and don't know how to turn it round!!)

Oh, we had those alright.  No problem out at sea or even in a harbour, but our night in the Crinan Canal..
