A day on the Charente river
Chris bought the Canoe so off we went in search of calm waters. A trip to the Tourist Office in Saintes pointed us in the right direction and with a detailed map we found the most perfect spot for a quiet picnic and then a leisurly paddle. With only the odd fishermen on the banks of the river we spotted several kingfishers and just as we were pulling up at the end of our excursion we got close enough to see him catch & eat his fish. We then sat for a quiet few hours in the shade while Chris fished - it was an amazing day.
