... 8230;…he must have had the week off. Everyone we met treated us as well as we treated them. I did not feel alienated or anything like that in France. Everyone treated us well. We did try to initiate things in French, being able to say hello and ask if they spoke English in French went a long way. The verdict on the rude French, MYTH.

... we rented a room at the Royal Inn. Thoughts of Jules saying “Royal with Cheese” from Pulp Fiction are stuck in my head.

What can I say... The weather was beautiful; We stayed at one of the Group Cabins It was well kept and it was just the right size for our group. We went down to the bottom of the Falls (one needs to be in pretty good health to take this hike) .The trail along the way was very pretty .We roasted marshmellows that night and. also, we had a visitor... a raccoon! Some of the ladies saw deer earlier in the day. All in all, made for a wonderful time together.
