Two River Beach

WhenRiversCollideWideS

We really needed a cold swim today. The mercury was hovering around 38ºC all day.. the pool is now at 30ºC so we couldn't really cool off in the pool.  The river beaconed.

We headed to Limeuil, a small village which can be found at the juncture where the Vézere merges into the Dordogne. The village is built around a steep hilltop and has an attractive walled park on the flat top.

It was a great and relaxing afternoon, the kids had great fun building a water break and finding interesting rocks.  The current was flowing quite swiftly as the level of the river is very low (no decent rain for weeks). Anyway the water break provided a good spot for mum and dad to relax (without holding on).  We will definitely be going back!
