A Paddle through the Chassezac River Gorge
Today we drove back to the Chassezac river to find out if the conditions were any better for canoeing. They were. The river had risen a little bit and we wasted little time in getting ourselves on the river and away. Ed had decided to use his collapsible canoe again today and this proved a lot better for his comfort. I paddled tandem with Vonda and we had a great time on the river – and only wobbled once seriously as we came through a bumpy & rocky section.
We meandered gently downstream past the spectacular cliffs and rocks and watched some climbers and abseilers at a couple of places.
Eventually we came to the end of our canoeing at the Chaulet Beach where Steve was waiting for us and where he had our lunch ready in the shade.
On the way home we stopped at a viewpoint to gaze over the Cevenne Mountains in the distance.
