After our big night last night we pottered around the house for a while today, then went for a drive to Beynac to explore the area around the river. Hugo has been asking for a ride in a hot-air balloon, but after investigating at a couple of local operations, we decided that he had better wait to do it on another holiday, when he will perhaps also remember it better. It would be incredible to float over these magnificent castles in a beautiful balloon, so I can understand why Hugo fancies it.
We went exploring down lots of little roads looking for a good spot on the river, and had a funny time in some farmer's paddock. His tractor access showed up on Google maps as a 'road', but it became apparent as we got closer to the water that to drive on could result in disaster! We settled for a kick of the footy and some photos with the castle in the background.
