Canoeing,kayaking in the Loire Valley

Canoeing / kayaking is a popular activity here in the Loire Valley with the Loire river and its tributaries offering the opportunity to test you at every level. 

When walking along the river Creuse on Sunday at Descartes we were surprised to see the local kayak club putting in some water polo practice...it was sunny but cold .
