Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink.

–Samuel Taylor Coleridge

We two have paddled in the stream, from morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared since days of long ago.

–Robert Burns.

Parking Reserved card holders and Residents was an odd sight on a sign in what is left of a camp site in Beynac yesterday.

The swelling of the Dordogne River was at its peak yesterday morning.

The trees on the left should be on dry land.

The terrace of this restaurant was under more than a metre of water.

D53 Route Barrie to Fayrac and Milandes and also the D703 to La Roque-Gageac.

Update on the water level at Castlenaud.

The statue stands in what is usually a very pleasant picnic area which is temporarily a tranquil lake.

It does not look too good at the moment with more rain due this afternoon and for the rest of the week. However, spring is just around the corner, we have new growth in our courtyard and flowers will be bursting through soon.

Event:- Burns Night- 25th January, where haggis is eaten and whiskey is drunk to honour a brilliant Scottish poet.

  1. Thanks for posting these and all your other pictures of an area we know and love. It keeps us in touch with what’s happening especially at our favourite campsite!! You seem to have integrated so well and been welcomed by the community, I’m interested to know if you spoke French before you arrived and if you have fully retired to Daglan or kept property in the UK? We have plans to move to somewhere near Carlux in the next few years and are slowly improving our language skills with regular French lessons! Keep up the blogging, it’s so interesting for potential runaways like ourselves 🙂

    • Thank you for your comments. We could speak a little French when we moved to France. However, living here and trying our best to communicate has helped a great deal. Although we still have french lessons. We are both retired and both loving the life here.
