|Some fishing boats along the shore of Lac de Saint-Cassien, near Cannes, France|
We took the car to Lac de Saint-Cassien yesterday and rented a paddle boat (pedalo) with a slide.
The day was amazing: sunny, breezy and the water was warm and lovely. This was supposed to be our Father's Day present and it worked out perfectly -- partly because I only had enough cash on me for a half-hour ride (the exact amount of boating fun the kids could handle).
I'm very, very, very glad, however, that I didn't look up the types of fish that live there until we got home. The carp are crazy!
There are a lot of videos on YouTube about the lake: a fly-over and a great number of videos of Germans holding up giant carp or searching out catfish underwater. I'm going to have to do more research before our next trip!
