Kayaking at L’Isle sur la Sorgue

L’Isle Sur La Surgue is a wonderful “island city” at the foot of the Vaucluse plateau. A river surrounds the town, and we kayaked for a few hours, taking a break to swim (the water was tres froid !)

In the video below, we are arriving at the most shallow end of the river, where the water was barely knee-high.

You can hear the song of les ciagles chirping in the background and perhaps a little of Linda singing Thomas Ferson’s “Les Papillons.”


After our paddle, we walked a bit through town (there’s hundreds of antique dealers – fortunately we were driving a tiny Fiat so we could not be tempted.)

We ate lunch in the park in front of a great local jazz band playing “Sunny Side of the Street” Dinner at La Balade des Saveurs was marvelous.


“If I never had a cent
I’d be rich as Rockefeller
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street”
