This stage has plenty of bridges. One after leaving Tortosa, two more before Amposta, rail and road, and last but not least the old bridge that in summer 2007 was being restored.
km 41.5 [L] Tortosa wharf
Comforted by a copious breakfast, kayak assembled, back into the river. It's early in the morning and there is no wind yet, paddling is easy.
km 33 [L] Campredó wharf
Later upstream wind starts blowing, raises waves and things become more difficult. The sight of two bridges means that a rest in Amposta is not far away.
km 29.5 Two bridges
