…On the edge of the Desert.
No drugs though. Unless you count the non-drowsy generic Sinutab that kept Melvin awake on our second night in Vegas. Or the copious amounts of alcohol that one is served while sitting playing $1 roulette.
We managed to get away from Casa Grande for a few nights last week. We drove to las Vegas for two nights and then on to San Diego before heading home. More on San Diego later.
We walked the strip in Vegas and took in the sights at all the big casino hotels. We also took a trip down to old Las Vegas and managed to catch the Fremont Street Experience — a recurring sound and light show that plays on a dome covering about two city blocks. pretty cool. While we've been told the show has been better int he past, we were both pretty impressed by the music and animation presented. Youtube has many videos showing past shows, but here's the one we saw — an advertisement for a new musical playing nearby! Love the groovy tunes!
And once you've had a look at that, you can check out a few additional photos from our trip to Vegas here:
