Vacation Update

Posting from the quiet of the morning here in Las Vegas.  A perfect 80 degree start to the day.  Vacation has been just great so far.  We arrived right on time after about eight hours of travel on Saturday.  We are staying at the Hilton Grand Vacations property near the Convention Center, and it’s really quite nice.  Very comfortable and very clean.  

As I sit here enjoying my morning coffee, my stress from everyday life has already melted away.  Honestly, it was just about gone by the time we arrived.  The day of travel was very exhausting, especially after getting up very early to catch our flight.  Turned in early Saturday, and had a great day yesterday roaming around the Strip, and hitting some casinos off the strip.  Hint *off-strip is where the winning is at*.  

Another relaxing day, following by a trip to the grocery store for some snacks for the room.  We ate dinner at The Wicked Spoon in the Cosmopolitan, one of the highest rated buffets in town.  Ate like a champ.

Today we are road tripping to Laughlin, NV.  Excited to see the Columbia River, and take in the sights there.  Never been there, so this will be a first.  They have a bunch of casinos there so I am sure we will play a good bit, too.

Check out the view from our suite.

Well, I’m off for another fun filled day.  Hoe you are all having a fantastic Labor Day here in the USA, and to those around the world, just a great Monday.

  1. Sigh….I miss Vegas. that’s a great view. There’s a Texas Station somewhere off the strip that has a great buffet, but I can’t remember exactly where it is because my uncle was driving and I tend to lose my sense of direction when I’m there (for reasons I’ll leave unmentioned).

    Also, if you want a really hearty breakfast…hit the Original Pancake House on 4170 South Ft. Apache Rd. But come hungry and don’t expect to eat the rest of the day if you decide to go there. 🙂

    Enjoy your vacation!

  2. Oh…and there’s the Omelet House at 2160 W Charleston Blvd. That’s where I had the biggest omelet I’ve ever had in my life…Oh, and if you want a good dinner place, Biaggio’s (not Bellagio’s) Pizzeria is fantastic…well, it was the last time I was there. 🙂

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go run 4 miles to just burn off all the calories I gained thinking about all this food. 🙂
