Canoeing in Angouleme

This is a set of photos from a lovely morning canoe in Angouleme, about 20mins or so from The Courtyard. It was 35 degrees so a steady paddle was in order. Found a lovely play spot and a sneaky little kayak slalom run with good fast water and easy white water. Summer time and river levels are very low due to hardly any rainfall, however, I bet in spring this could be a challenge for experienced paddlers too.

As usual with the Charente all the beautiful trees and buildings along the way. Little beaches ideal for picnics and swimming in the crystal clear waters.

There had been a world music festival that weekend hence the metal fencing preventing the revellers from leaping in the water as it got too hot!
