The Ardeche river, in it's rush to reach the Rhone, has carved a tortuous route deep into the limestone massif,
to produce the most awe-inspiring scenery through which those who are so inclined attempt to pass in cockleshell canoes.
For the less adventurous the road which follows it at high level gives vistas enough.
When eventually the massif gives way to gentler country the river slows and deposits the wide banks of shingle where in summer
local girls swim and sunbathe, families picnic and artists come to paint.
Here on the north bank, facing the last of the white cliffs is St. Martin d'Ardèche; on the terraces one can dine sumptuously
on trout straight from the cool clear river;
Sir William loved to wander in the shaded fringes of the village and paint such semi-interiors as this conversation piece.
