We're Staying another Week!

Tuesday, November 22

Las Vegas RV Resort is a nice enough place to stay for another week we think.  We initially paid through tonight, but we went in to the office today and extended it one week.
We have been enjoying the Hot Tub nearly every night, and Jeff is taking advantage of their fitness center.  The park and the surrounding city is great for walking or riding the bikes (that is bicycles).

Saturday and Sunday we stayed at home... but yesterday (Monday) we made another trip to the Las Vegas Strip.

We parked in the Flamingo parking garage, and walked through their "wildlife habitat".


Austrailian Black Swan

Besides their wildlife habitat, the other theme of the Flamingo Casino Hotel is Margaritaville. 

Having made our way through the Flamingo Casino, we exited out to Las Vegas Blvd,
and walked several blocks South to the Harley Davidson Cafe.

The sites along the Strip were interesting, to say the least...
City life can take its toll on everyone, I suppose


Finally we arrived at the Harley Davidson Cafe.



The atmosphere was entertaining...  but we can't say alot for the food.




Back to The Strip to see what else we can find to see...

The Bellagio has a fountain show every 1/2 hour


So we made our way up and across the street to the Bellagio...



... to the Bellagio, where we waited for the fountains...

... and here it comes

They were spectacular!  like water fireworks!

We made our way back to our truck and headed home... that was the Monday adventure.

Tuesday we got together with a friend from home (land home). 
We found out they were in Vegas, via good ol' facebook. 

Dan's wife was busy with family, so I had to find something to occupy my time, while they chatted.  So I sat beside them and played some blackjack, on the bar machine.  I played for 30 minutes with the $5 I deposited.  But they were still chatting.  So I inserted another dollar and switched to playing Keno.  I played 6 spot, using our birthday dates, and got all 6 numbers!
I won $125!  Whoo Hoo!

  4. That's a fun place this time of the year, especially! Glad you're enjoying yourselves. We will be leaving the Sands on the 29th, so you will have an extra measure of sunshine to enjoy. Sorry we'll miss seeing you again...but we'll be back to rainy Oregon and I'm sure you won't be heading back that way for awhile yet!

    Many diseases are caused when our body is not in the correct balance.
