My Summer Vacation, Part 2

After we spent the day exploring Zion, we came back to our hotel room and got in the pool and the hot tub. It was so refreshing and nobody else was in it. As we were splashing around, we could see people setting off fireworks all around us.

The next morning we got up and headed to Park City, Utah. On the way, we decided to have a picnic at a roadside park just outside of Provo. To save money, we had packed stuff for lunches and breakfasts. We were just going to pull into a parking lot somewhere and eat, but we saw several parks along the highway. Of course, we never saw the sign for the next park until it was too late. And when we did see the signs in time, I was in the wrong lane to get to it. Finally, fate worked with us and we found a park that we were able to get to.

Here I am eating my lunch:

It was a beautiful park right along side a fast moving stream. It was beautiful. As we continued on the highway, we followed the stream. There were all kinds of small parks along the stream, so we got out a few times for photo ops.

Here's a picture from one of our stops:

We finally arrived in Park City and it was so charming and full of character. The place my brother hooked us up with to stay in was quite nice. Our room was on the third floor overlooking the main street.

After we got the car unloaded, we explored the street looking at all the shops and restaurants. We decided on a BBQ place for dinner. It was such a beautiful evening, we sat out on the patio which was actually on the main street. We ate a delicious meal, drank wonderful margaritas and did lots of people watching.

Here's Brenda deciding what to order.....tough decision.

Here's what she decided on...ribs, chicken and sweet potatoes. Very good food.

After dinner, we sat on the couch in our living room for hours just admiring the views and watching people some more. Brenda actually saw a guy change his clothes right out on the main street. It was funny because he was so careful to look around to make sure no one could see him. I guess he forgot to look up.

Here are some shots from our room:

 These were taken as the sun was setting.

Here's me enjoying the view. Can you tell how happy and content I am!?!

Stayed tuned for the next chapter of this adventure.
