Las Vegas

Was a great time! Now taking time to recover from all the fun. Stayed at the Golden Nugget on Fremont Street very nice place.

Each night Fremont Street puts on a light show at the top of the hour until one am. Very nice but very loud. Every show was different we didn't see the same show twice however we didn't see every show. 


It was cold for Las Vegas, not as cold as Minneapolis, MN. worked just right for me. Did too much walking the first day, we decided to stay on Fremont Street there is a shopping mall at one end of the street so we spent one day there it was fun, everywhere was something new to see. Jane did her people watching as I window shopped worked great for us both. It was never dull, something was happening all the time there. 

Had people asking about my walker saying how much their Mother or Father would love something like it. A few  asked why I didn't use a standard walker they weren't rude about it or anything like that,  they had never seen anything like my walker before. Letting them know that because M.S. had weaken the muscles in my wrist's, my arms still work so I didn't need a wheelchair, just something in between so I use this ( I'd move around a bit so they could see how it works) and ask, "Works great don't you think?" I've always gotten a positive response back. It's a gain for everyone involved in the exchange, they gain new information and understanding, I gain the joy of teaching someone something they didn't know before, that's a win win for everybody if you ask me!


The last full day we didn't do much walking around outside the Golden Nugget, I needed to rest a lot more, we sat by the pool these are pictures of the shark tank . The first one is of a tropical fish tank.

The tube is a water slide through the tank
  
Not so sure who's watching who
in this one!!
Date stamps are all wrong.
