Las Vegas

First - good news.  Since March my mother has been on chemo for cancer.  Her second last treatment was to be this week.  When she went in the Dr. told her that the last two were not needed and she just needs to go home and get well.  For that I am so thankful and relieved. Way to go Mom!!

We have been in Las Vegas for a few days now and of course the first thing we did was walk the strip. 
We wandered along in front of the Palazzo............
I think this was the Palazzo.  It does become a bit of a blur after a bit. Either way it was a beautiful spot in the middle of the city.

We wandered into the Venetian and watched the gondolas cruising up and down the river.....
The lobby ceiling....
Treasure Island.....

Yesterday we went to Hoover Dam and did a tour.  It is hard to believe what man can do when he is determined.

The water is a bit low.

Lake Mead.  This used to be the Colorado River before Hoover Dam was built.  We are going to take the Sea Eagle out for a cruise later this while we are here.

Today I think we are going out to see what pictures can be found. The one thing we don't have to worry about here is getting a sunny day to take pictures.  I am loving it.  The temps have been in the high 90s and triple digits.  I don't know if I would want to spend the whole summer here.  It must get frightfully hot.  Numbers like mid one hundred and teens are being tossed around on weather channel.  Thanks but 100 is hot enough for me.  I think I will pass.

That is all from home here in Vegas.  Until the next time stay safe out there and maybe we can meet down the road one day.  


  1. The water at the Hoover dam has been low for many years. Guess L.A. is using up too much water or not enough rain to fill the reservoir.
    L.V. is sure an interesting city to see. We did the "Strip" at night. Quite a show.

  2. Nice area of the country. I like heat too, and sunny skies. Lake Meade is a great place too.

  3. wow wonderful pics of the country...we could sure use some of that heat right now...glad your mom is doing well...wtg

  4. We would love to have you visit!!! Anytime your in the area..
