We decided that our destination for the day would be France. Neither Dan or I had ever been to France and it was only one hour away. How could we resist?
A man we had spoken with in the hospital waiting room (his toddler was also having surgery) mentioned an interesting French citadel about an hour away. Dan was excited about the history, I was simply excited about France, and I'm sure Peter was excited that it was only an hour away. It was a unanimous vote.
The citadel was located in the city of Bitche, France. (We heard one tour guide pronounce it "beach" and another pronounce it...the other way....) Though the name is enough to make you blush, the town itself was very charming. We were blessed with another beautiful day, which made exploring the in's and out's of the citadel very enjoyable. The view from the top was specatcular!
