Helloooo! Happy Tuesday!
This past weekend I got to enjoy an all "girl" getaway to Laughlin Nevada. Five us loaded up and headed to the Colorado river. Laughlin is like a little Las Vegas, about 6 casino/hotels along the river bank.
We arrived about 4 P.M. and the sun was starting to sink in the west and made the mountains on the east bank glow. This is the view from my room.......on the 20th floor.
Looking down onto the river.....that is a river taxi heading to the east bank to pick up people and bring them over.
Saturday morning I was sitting on the River Walk....a walkway between the river and the buildings.......runs behind all the casinos. I was enjoying my first cup of coffee as the sun came up.
There was artwork on the buildings along the River Walk. I found this one the most interesting.
Back in my room, for one more cup of coffee before joining the others for a hearty breakfast and the days shenanigans. I have never been much of a gambler, or heavy drinker......but I did have fun just "people" watching. This was Veteran's Day and the casinos had free buffets for all the veterans, which I thought was such a great thing for them to do. So there were a lot of veterans wearing their baseball caps with their service logos on them, such a heat warming thing to see......and they were fun to talk to.
After a couple hours at the out-let, shopping we took a break.......which meant it was time for a little wine.......
......and a few minutes to prop my feet up.....grin!
I was just amazed at how clear the water was in this area......it is a muddy dirty river in Colorado, but so clear and clean here! So I took this from my room, so I could get a shot looking down.......even though the windows were very dirty....you can see the bottom of the river.
