Today most of the group drove over to the river Gardon which flows through the Pont du Gard and got into six canoes, four double and two singles. Really this blog should be entitled 'Groan, Groan'. Certainly I have pains in muscles I never knew I had. We paddled for four hours with a stop at the Pont du Gard for a picnic lunch.
Everyone plus beached canoes plus a background of Pont du Gard.
Yesterday we had lunch at Alexandre, a Michelin two star restaurant. Above is the first course which is steak tartare. Very grand and rather unusual. We ate outside under awnings in their spectacular garden.
Somebody's puddings! We have one vegetarian and I was very careful to mention this when booking. I even suggested that she could have an omelette if all else failed. The reply email said the chef would create a suitable vegetarian dish and so he did. Her main course was courgette flower stuffed with truffle mousse and everyone else was madly jealous.
Tomorrow a local town is having its annual festival and procession and we plan to attend.
