Spring Break in Vegas, Baby

DH and I spent a week in Las Vegas at the Flamingo. I still didn’t make it to a LYS, oh well. I did remember to take some sky shots, one even on Saturday. Warning: photo heavy post. Speaking of Internet connections, we did not have one this morning. I have talked to Belkin three times, and our ISP once. I have messed with computers all dat. We now have a new network card, new Ethernet cable, and a new wireless router. Whew! I guess I still retain the title of Techno-geek that DH gave me, despite the fact it took three days to change the time on my previous Accord’s clock.

Sunday sky with Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas. I had French toast for dinner in Paris.

Turn around after taking shot above, and this is what you see.
Dusk

View from our room at dusk. The pink is Flamingo, the blue is Imperial Palace, and Harrah’s, Venetian and a corner of the Wynn are visible. The backs and sides are almost as impressive as the fronts.

We went to see Spamalot at the Wynn. We also got card memberships at the Wynn, and racked up enough points for 4 buffets. OMG. Grilled asparagus, salmon, red snapper, shrimp, raspberry iced tea, creme brulee, carrot cake, key lime pie, caramel eclairs….  DH did not have to explain Monty Python humor to me. We were very close to the stage. King Arthur (John O’Hurley) kept blocking my view.

Breakfast at Margaritaville. This is the view across the street from the third floor balcony. Yes, they have the drink menu at 7 a.m. DH was winning,  and had hit his first Royal Flush on video poker at the Flamingo, He had several hand pays, so he celebrated with Incommunicados (scroll to very end) and pancakes. I had French toast with berries and whipped cream.

We also had dinner at Margaritaville. I had crab and corn chowder, shrimp and crabmeat salad, a peach daiquiri, and a COKE. (What is it with the Pepsi and casinos?) DH had the Cheeseburger in Paradise and more Incommunicados. I had Key Lime pie for dessert. You-know-who had an Incommunicado. We did a lot of walking.

The Toe Jazz second sock admires the view. I left CPH in Birmingham. I took the entrelac scarf with bamboo needles on the plane, but only worked on the sock at the Flamingo.

I turned the heel, and finished the gussets. See that pedicure?

  1. Oh my gosh! I am so jealous. I have only been to Vegas once and at the time I was very sick (gallblader – didn’t know it). Looking at your pics makes me want to go back. Looks like you guys are having a fabulous spring break. Yay!

  2. Let’s see — you were pampered, extremely well-fed, and entertained by something every time you turned around (Vegas is good for that). Sounds like a perfect vacation!
