28 Reasons to go Canoeing: 15: Discover the river at dawn

Inn to Inn Guided Canoe Trips in France and the Perigord, Dordogne region

Canoeing as the sun rises at Beynac on the Dordogne river, France

Discover the river at dawn

Off for an early start on the river. A long day ahead and a long way to go. I love sliding onto the water before the sun is up. The mist is rolling on the water like vaporous tumbleweed, and the water-fowl, still sleepy, disappear and re-appear.

This is beautiful on an autumn morning. The canoe glides over the water which always seems to be unnaturally calm at the early hour.

On this stretch of the Dordogne in France, if you time your launch correctly, you can look back on the sun rising over the misty Castle Beynac, and turning around can paddle towards the spires and towers of the Chateau Milandes spearing above the mist. Magical times.
