- Day 9 Monday 5th September 1977
Today we visited the Mormon Temple & new Visitor Centre.
I enjoyed this very much. We stayed behind at 1130am as we had a choice to walk back to the hotel (only half hour) or coach back now. We had not seen all the films so we carried on. The films were very interesting, I bought the Book of Mormon for $1 as it was a softback & looked different from my hardback & also I could say that I bought it at the Centre. A man talked about the different temples around the World, we talked to him about visiting Salt Lake and he invited us to go with himself, his wife & daughter for a ride up to the mountains on the edge of Salt Lake which was very nice of him. He arranged to pick us up at 7pm that evening. We left the Visitors Centre & walked back returning around 5pm. We were told about a film slide show that had been arranged for all of us & pics were of the Osmonds. We tried to contact our friend but he had gone home so we phoned his home & left a message, we hoped he would go home before coming to see us ! We ordered a takeaway again, while waiting with Janice, Ang & Rosie talked with our friend who arrived in the meantime outside. After collecting our order we went upstairs to eat. Ang & Rosie came up after a while saying that they didn’t mind at all about wanting to stay in. We arranged to contact the Visitor Centre when we have a free evening which was a great idea. The film show was great, rare photos of the Family, some of the Las Vegas Show this year & rare pics of Travis, Michael & Amy. During the film show, Donny’s book, Donny & Marie Tiger Beat Mag, Donny & Marie Book were being passed around, we knew we now had to find them when shopping next ! The end came of a nice day. Goodnight everybody !
