Several residents have been enjoying fall travels. Lee and Frances Stack enjoyed a trip to Branson, Mo. Gail Mayfield visited her sister in Arkansas. Frankie and Mary Lynn Lambert traveled to Demotte, Ind., to visit relatives. Marcus Fry is welcomed back to Silerton by his wife, Jamie, and the city from his recent trip to Texas.
Vicki Rush, who grew up right outside Silerton, has just returned from a trip to France.
“We began in Mont St Michel, a site I had long wanted to visit. This was quite an experience – an 11th Century abbey built high on an island mount and until recently was only accessible by boat during high tide. Today, there is a bridge that connects the surrounding town to the mainland. After our first night’s sleep, we began our trip up, way up, to the abbey at the top of the island. My FitBit showed that we had climbed the equivalent of 23 flights of stairs by the time we reached the top! This visit was as unique and interesting as I had always imagined.
“After a short stop in Bayuex, we headed to Paris for five nights. Some of my favorite things there were the Rodin Musuem, a short cruise on a bateau mouche down the Seine, a walking and dining tour of Montmarte, a visit to Giverney, the home of Monet, and, of course, the interesting food and wine.
“After Paris, we headed to Lyon, and then, we sailed aboard the AmoCello for a seven night cruise in Burgundy. The trip began in Chalon and ended in Arles with stops in Beaune, Vienne, Viviers and Avignon. The cities and towns were picturesque and easy to reach from the ship’s docking point. Many cruisers bicycled their way down the river Soane. We disembarked in Arles and headed to Aix in Provence for a short stay. While there, we visited the hill towns of the Luberon and other sites in southern France.
“The trip was almost three weeks of trains, cars, ships and planes, and, happily, all were on time with no stress or strain other than which wine to choose!”
Thanks, Vicki, for allowing us to experience France through your travels.
