Taillebourg & Port d'Envaux (discoveries on a canoe)
Another beautiful day on the river. Our excursion took us north of Saintes to the pretty villages of Port d'Envaux where we enjoyed our picnic by the river and Taillebourg from where we set out with the canoe. The river was wide and peaceful we saw what we think to be a grass snake at least 80 cms long swim the width of the river in front of us and climb up through a tree at the water's edge. We also got close to a bird we have yet to identify but we have Suzanne working on a positive id.
Unfortunately Chris has to go home tomorrow but Suzanne et famille arrive on Monday.
