French Alps 2019 paddling trip

Day 3a The Lower Guil by Sarah Gille

After waiting patiently on the bus for mark to get ready the convoy set off for another day on the river.

We made it down the rickety road to the get in and had a few practice rolls in the clear blue water before we set off.

A few of us where starting to get a bit weary so the pleasant flow carried us down with a bimbly bounce to view the beautiful scenery that surrounded us.

Strange rock formations in the shape of a hand and a large cascading waterfall.

A few stop offs where made and we played on the waves and practiced our break ins.

Next a bit of eddy hopping practice where I heard that a member of the less experienced and professional group in front had unfortunately taken a swim.

From far far far far far far far far away it looked like a huge pour over with a massive stopper behind it.

But from close up it was a tiny rock.

The swimmer????

Captain Kirk.

We descended to the Durance and slalom course where we practiced our surfing.

Aaron was getting the hang of the big surf waves and so too was Alexander.

A few of us had a play on the slide and had another run, while others sunbathed and had lunch.

What fun!!
