Vacation 2016 - Day 14, Part 3: The Walk to Carcassonne

When we reached Carcassonne, we checked in at the Camping la Cité, a really nice, albeit a bit pricey camping site.

After setting up camp, we set out on foot to visit the old city of Carcassonne.

Carcassonne has an airport, just west of the city.

Most of the walk was along a very idyllic canal.

Some insect wildlife: Dragonflies!

The rest of the family was also busy taking pictures!

After taking the left one, I realized that the scenery would make a nice picture.

Below is another pair of Dragonflies, resting in the sun.

After a fairly long walk under the trees, we emerged to this sight!

Now with white horse...

Just before entering the city, the kids came across a hollow tree. Of course it had to be exploited!

One of the next days I shall post about the city of Carcassonne itself. Lots of eye-candy for the medievally inclined readers, so stay tuned, if you like castles!
