Shirley and I are back from our annual trip to Las Vegas. We had a good time, as always, and I think I enjoyed this trip more than most, just because I needed a break from the daily grind. We left on a Monday evening and arrived pretty late so we were tired on arrival and didn’t do much exploring. The vacation seemed short this time because we only had 3 full days in town. I could have stayed another day or two. We spent our time shopping, eating, walking, and playing slots. Here’s some food porn 🙂
We attended the Cirque du Soleil production of LOVE, a tribute to the Beatles. It was a fun show. Interactive, great music, and the performers were incredibly talented. I highly recommend this show. Our seats were close to the stage so we had a bird’s eye view.
We went to the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage because I had a coupon for 3 dollars off each ticket. Regular price was $17.00. Neither Shirley or I felt the exhibits were worth the cost. In a previous trip we had strolled through the Flamingo Habitat at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino. I enjoyed that much more and there was no charge.
We had an angry kamikaze cab driver who did his best to kill us and several pedestrians.
The gambling gods were not cruel.
The weather was just beautiful. Sunny and hot. When we left Las Vegas the temp there was 87 degrees. When we got home it was 48 degrees and windy. It was a shock to our systems!
