Bernie did some genealogical reasearch... The staff was very welcoming and helpful...

The flower gardens and the statuary in Temple Square were remarkable. Pierre had never seen so many beautiful flowers.
A very relaxing place to walk and gaze at all the beauty and meet news friends... Bernie and Pierre meet two of the many Sisters at Temple Square. The Sisters are the only persons who are allowed to give tours throughout the Square and can do so in many languages...

Prince Pierre found a Carriage Stop for a Carriage for Hire as he and Bernie were getting ready to leave for home.... Bernie had to explain to the Prince that the cariages were not for trips to the airport, but for tours of the city... Alas, the Prince always loves riding in a carriage . . .

Prince Pierre would like to thank Bernie for a wonderful trip to
Salt Lake City, Utah and all the folks who were so kind to him on this journey . . .

I wonder where the Prince will be off to next?

Looks like Maryland
