Tuesday, Oct.21, Day 50; Wednesday, Oct.22, Day 51 – Park City & Midway

Tuesday was rainy and quite cool, so we decided to stay put, do laundry, catch up on emails, financial stuff and the blog and just read and relax- so indeed, that’s what we did.
Wednesday broke bright sunshine and cool. We played 9 holes of golf at the Park City course again, came back for a light lunch and read for a while. We were picked up by our friend, Phyllis Barber, famous authoress of memoirs, for a wonderfully delightful evening with her lovely husband, Bill Traeger -driven first to their home where we were treated to yummy hors d’oeuvres and a “tour” of Bill’s collections of some absolutely outstanding antiquities such as a Han Dynasty horse and a Samurai general’s armor and many Inuit sculpture pieces.
We then proceeded to a delicious dinner at a terrific restaurant called the Blue Boar Inn, In Midway. It is a small, 12 room Swiss style inn, with a 5 star restaurant. I had the best clam chowder that I’ve ever tasted in my life, the others had a very fresh garden salad with the chef’s special dressing, 3 of us enjoyed the grilled salmon & asparagus while Bill claimed to have “won” with his chicken dish, all accompanied by an excellent merlot from the 4 Hands Vineyard in Oregon. All was topped off by wonderful chocolate cake and delicious cheese cake. Just a delightful evening!
