The Best parts of a Picnic are:-

1 – The temperature had dropped to about 22C this morning so an ideal time for a picnic on the banks of the river at Castelnaud-la-Chapelle.

2 Just to take time out and enjoy the views. One of which is the old transport barges called ‘Gabares’, which now transport sight seeing tourists up and down the river Dordogne.

The one above runs from La Roque Gageac to just before Castelnaud. If you recall the movie “Chocolate” with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp, you will remember the barges.
 

3 Picnic itself consisted of a poached salmon pizza and gorgeous petit gateau we bought from Maison Carré

Once again I must diet for another month!
 

4 The friendlessness of the wildlife. He came to stand right next to me. You can just see the end of our picnic table at the bottom of the picture.
 

5 A relaxing canoe ride on the river. Paul was trying his best to convince me that we should hire a canoe, I am still thinking about it.
 

6 The best is the last. To come home to be greeted by a surprise, M. Guichard, the baker from the Boulangerie next door who has cleaned the pavement and the road in front of his shop and our house while we were absent. A very big thank you.
