    We stayed at our rented house this morning to work on the website.  Some of you have commented that it must be difficult to do this every day and it is time-consuming but we enjoy sharing our trip and our pictures.  However, in the last few days, Ben has been having trouble with the technical aspects on the computer and he was trying to resolve some of those issues this morning.

   We left here around noon, thinking we would do the day’s tour in reverse and catch up with our Texas friends on the way.  Because we were missing a page from the tourbook, we didn’t realize how far it was to Polson, the last stop for the day, and got there just as Ernie and Ginger and Tommy and Patsy were leaving to return to Whitefish.  So, we turned around and drove home over the same road we had come.  The drive took us past the beautiful Flathead Lake, which stretched through three counties on our drive and maybe more.  With the sun shining and a clear sky, the lake was a rich blue and the mountains behind it were a hazy blue-gray.  It looked like an oil pinting.

   Dinner tonight was planned by the Montana T Club at the Summit Restaurant, at the top of the mountain.  To get there, we had to ride the ski lift to the top, a height of 6,800 feet and a 15 minute ride above the treetops.  I’ve become a pro at the chairlifts now and enjoyed seeing the panorama of not only Whitefish Mountain Resort but Whitefish Lake way down in the village.  The food was delicious and we were joined at our table by Bruce and Marl Campbell of Anchorage.  You remember them; they are the people who restored our lovely Model T and sold it to us.  We didn’t know they were coming until we saw them earlier in the week and it was a great surprise.

   By the way, we made it all the way up the hill tonight without having to go into Ford Low!  That’s Model T talk for “whoo hoo!”
