photoblog image The View of the Gardon River From the Bridge

The View of the Gardon River From the Bridge

 

i took this picture at the end of August and the water level was very low...

i’m sure that the spring runoff would cover the rocks along the right shoreline...

If this were in the Netherlands right now, Peter, it would be full to overflowing!

I can see lots of space for lovely camping sites.
....peter:): it is inside a paid park Louis... i don't think that there is overnight camping allowed there... which is a pity....petersmile

This looks like a wonderful place to be on a hot summer day. I always love this kind of places, so much different from the Netherlands.
....peter:): we were there in August Astrid... it was a great way to cool off along the river... i have never seen the Netherlands... it is different judging by from yours and Ginnie's pictures....petersmile
Perfect for those that were there that day.
....peter:): it was a perfect day for us Mary... thanks....petersmile
A fine view and some rather nice countryside.
....peter:): thank you Brian... Le Provence is a beautiful place to visit....petersmile
I like that rocky beach...
....peter:): most of that rocky beach is under water in the spring Larry....petersmile

It is a delightful image and it would be interesting to the same viewpoint in spring.
