The Lac de la Cavayère, Carcassonne, Aude, France - 10th August

It's time to do a bit of swimming at what is generally known as Carcassonne's beach - the Lac de la Cavayére, just a few miles outside the city. The swimming is fantastic as it's fresh water, calm and most of all actually warm. It's also quite possibly Nosher's first return visit since 1980
