Highlights

Here's just a few pictures that represent the highlights of the last few days of our trip into Las Vegas.


This beautiful creature is one of the sting rays in the aquarium at Mandalay Bay hotel. They were very graceful and impressive. I actually was able to rub this guy's back with my finger - very silky feeling.


This is Lloyd and me outside Caesar's Palace. We were on our way next door to the Mirage to see the Cirque du Soleil's Beatles Love show. It was incredibly amazing. We've seen two of the Cirque du Soleil shows so far and want to see them all.


One of the sharks in the shark reef at the Mandalay Bay Hotel aquarium.


This impressive creature is one of the few remaining Komono Dragons in existence...again part of the aquarium at Mandalay Bay.




A Las Vegas strip street scene - one of the hotels - Excalibur I think.





Lloyd and Mark at Caesar's Palace at night.





The bridge over the Hoover Dam under construction.






The Hoover Dam. We walked (and drove) across it while it's still possible to do that. It's an amazing structure.
It's nice to be home. Las Vegas is very tiring...and the drive back home (3 days almost), although beautiful, was tiring too. We'll fly next time.

I think Circe is creepy -- too much like those weird French Canadian Sesame Street numbers from the 70s.
