Day 16, Las Vegas, April 19th

0 miles today,  3,384 miles total

Toured the opulent resorts along the strip including the Venetian (yes, those pictures are taken indoors), the Palazzio, Treasure Island (Volcanic eruption), The Wynn (floral masterpieces) and Circus Circus. Had brunch at Denny’s overlooking the erupting Vocano of Treasure Island. With 77 degrees & sunny, Beth relaxed by the pool as I just relaxed & pondered this seeming oasis in the desert enigma. We went to the incredible, energized Donny & Marie Show at the Flamingo voted #1 Best Show/Performer/Singers. Afterwards, we had dinner at St. Mark’s Square in the Venetian Resort at Canaletto amid a trio seranade. On to California without a banjo on my knee, m, b & t

“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.” – James Michener

“Retirement is like a long vacation in Las Vegas.  The goal is to enjoy it the fullest, but not so fully that you run out of money.”  ~Jonathan Clements

“In a city of illusion, where change is what the city does, it’s no wonder Las Vegas is the court of last resort, the last place to start over, to reinvent yourself in the same way that the city does, time after time. For some it works; for some it doesn’t, but they keep coming and trying.”–HAL ROTHMAN, Neon Metropolis

    Love your Sedona and Vegas posts! We did Vegas, Grand Canyon, Sedona and ended in Phoenix about 2 weeks earlier for Spring Break. We enjoyed Sedona as much as it appears you did, but can’t say the same about Vegas. Love following your adventures!
