Good news the water level is reducing, the not so good news is that more rain is forecast for this week. But I will stick to the good news for now. Last week the river Dordogne at La Rogue-Gageac was flooded so the road was closed. We checked it out yesterday and you can now drive through. The level of water is high but it is not now over the banks. The same goes for Castlenaud, the road through Fayrac was closed but no problem at all now.
In keeping with the good news theme the River Céou is higher than I have ever seen it before but nowhere near the top of the banks.
River Céou at Daglan.
The fast flowing river over the weir would be great for a canoeist.
It is a pity that the old mill is not operational, it would be great to harness the power of the water.
Rain rain go away.
The first craft session was held last Wednesday afternoon in Daglan. It was great fun and I am looking forward to session two. If you are interested it is every Wednesday from two untill four at the Salle des Fêtes in Daglan.
Sarlat Truffle Festival next Saturday and Sunday, if you are going try the truffle macaroons they are so delicious.
