Quiet Flows the Dordogne

Later that afternoon I rented a kayak for a float down the Dordogne, tying together various sights from our trip from a aquatic perspective. Attentive readers will recognize Domme on its lofty hill, very beau La Roque Gageac, scrappy Castlenaud and proud Beynac.

Kudos to the French (and their many foreign visitors) for keeping this stretch of the Dordogne in a nearly immaculate state. Too many rivers around the world are despoiled with plastic bottles and other refuse. It was a pleasure to see a well-traveled river in a populous area that has largely escaped this affliction.
