Day 16 - Vivaaaa Las Vegas!

Hi everyone.  What a fabulous day we had yesterday, if not a little foot weary :-)

I think we must have walked for miles - well it felt like it anyways.  Luckily, there are a lot of cool walk ways through the casinos, and not too much outside in the heat.

Just to let you know, we aren't the gambling type and to be honest probably wouldn't have a clue how to use the machines anyway!  We passed one slot machine that had a prize of over $438,000!!  We would probably lose any monies, just trying to work out what to do.  But we are enjoying the atmosphere and another item off of our bucket list :-)

We took the monorail, to the one end of the city - to the Mandalay Bay where we went in to the see the Shark Reef.  Unfortunately, Andy's camera wasn't playing well in the dim light, but I do have some photos.

This Komodo Dragon was huge!

Oh no, Emily and Shannon being attacked by the sharks!  Oh, phew! Just a reflection :-)

Insert, music!  Duh d, duh d, duh d.duhdduhdduhd :-)

Beautiful Lion fish - didn't hear him roar though :-)

Think this Star fish, really did think he was a star!  "Night Fever, Night Feverrr!" 

And of course!!!!  The face in the reef :-)

Then we took a few photo's outside and went for some late afternoon lunch/supper.  Here are a couple of New York, New York.

We decided to then head back to the hotel for an hour or so, before once again heading out and off to The Rio to see Penn & Teller.

Our seats, were fabulous!  Just the 3rd row from the front, and guess what!  Andy got nabbed to go up on stage and help them do a trick!  Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos of that part :-(  But Andy played his part well :-)

We managed to get a couple of photos taken with the duo, but separately :-)

With Penn :-)

And Teller :-)

Fabulous night and the girls enjoyed it too, and we rolled into bed at around mid-night.  Hence the late posting of this, as I type it up this morning.

Andy left at around 5.45am, he is going on his helicopter trip this morning :-)  If you have been following along, you will know that originally this had been planned for the beginning of our vacation, but got cancelled because of a storm.

Today, we are off out and about Vegas again, but not till Andy gets back - so a leisurely start to the day for us girls :-)  We will be out this evening, to see the lights etc and will hopefully have more to share with you tomorrow.

Thanks for all your lovely comments and see you soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Karon, first of all I just want to say that I am so glad to hear that your husband will be home again. Thank you for posting all your lovely holiday photos, I was looking forward to your photos of Walt Disney and Las Vegas. Las Vegas is one of those places if you do not gambling there is so much to do with the family. You must enjoy your holiday. Anet x

  6. Sounds like a fun exciting day!!!
    I am not a gambler either. I spent $5.00 and that was it for me, teehee.

  7. Hi Karon,
    Glad you're enjoying yourselves. Great pics. Hope your hubby loves his helicopter ride. Have fun!!!

  8. Loving all the pictures Karon! Looks like you are having an amazing time!
    Enjoy the Vegas night lights!!!!

  9. Love those photos of the critters! Sounds like you had a great time in Las Vegas. I'm not much of a gambler either though I did figure out how to use the nickel slot machine many years ago and hit the Jackpot of a big win of $50. Then I quit. Ha, ha. Wonder if they still have the nickel slots.

  10. LOVE your pics with Penn and Teller. How fun. I bet Andy was great up there on stage. Thanks for sharing.
    Crafty hugs,
