Bridge over the Dordogne River

Thursday, December 3, 2009

It was a beautiful sunny day as we floated on the Dorgogne River in the Perigord region of France.  Above the river, high on a bluff was the town of Beynac with its huge castle overlooking the valley.  This bridge was astutely built with hollow pilings, which allows water to enter during flood stages giving it more strength against the raging waters.
