AKA “This day centers around food”.
We decided that we were done with skiing, and wanted to just relax on our last full day. So, with that in mind, we didn’t set an alarm, and woke up mid morning. And watched TV for a few hours. And then were hungry and decided that we wanted lunch.
There was a Chinese restaurant in the plaza right next to our hotel, so we decided to try. Bad mistake. If you are ever in Avon, do NOT eat at the “China Garden” restaurant in the Avon Center plaza. I ordered sesame chicken, and although the sesame sauce tasted good, it was pretty obvious that it had been made a while ago, and microwaved. Inconsistently. My fried rice was also really dry, and not very flavorful. Tracy had similar comments about her orange chicken and noodles. The service was really slow, which is odd, considering we were literally the only patrons in the entire restaurant.
After that, we took the bus back to Beaver Creek, since we had missed cookie time yesterday, and after the awful food we had just eaten, we wanted something, anything else. So we get there around 2:15, walk around some of the shops for a bit, waiting for 3pm. At the appointed hour, we find the cookie people, and are handed 2 cookies apiece. Although they weren’t as good as the other day, still, free cookie for the win.
From there, we wandered around Beaver Creek a little longer, and then took the bus back to our hotel.
A little bit later on, we called Daniel, and made plans to drive over to Vail to meet him for dinner (Jennifer had to work). We drove to Vail, picked Daniel up at his apartment, and then went to Vail Village. Daniel recommended a local ice cream shop for milkshakes, so we had milkshakes, then walked down the street to a pizza place, and had dinner.
We dropped Daniel back at his apartment, and we decided to go home and pack, because we had to fly home tomorrow.
