Over to the Las Vegas Strip

The morning was pretty quiet, took Cheye on some walks, did a little cleaning and surfed the net. About 2:00 we decided to go to the Fashion Show Mall over on the strip and then visit a couple of the casino/resorts nearby. We spent about 45 minutes at the mall and then walked over to the Wynn. This is a new place for us…very nicely done. Of course I didn’t expect it to be shabby! From there we walked to the Venetian. We had seen it once before but it is impressive. You can go on a gondola ride for $16.00 per person….hey… Chad, Robin, what do you think? Wanna go on a Gondola ride when you come down?

The weather was perfect this afternoon. We had some rather nasty wind overnight, Dave had to go out at 1:00 a.m. to put up the awning as it was flapping and thumping in the wind. We heard our neighbors out about the same time putting up their awning too.

It was a fun day. Definitely something different than what we have been doing since we became full-timers. Dave & I used to come down to Vegas about once a year for quite a while. We aren’t gamblers but enjoy the shows, the restaurants, watching people and looking at the amazing hotel/casinos they have built. It’s fun to be back.
