Vegas Voyage

It's been a while since we got back from Vegas, but I've been trying to keep tweets coming on at least a semi-regular basis on the Twitter sidebar.

So, to make up for it, here is a photo-dump from the past month.

We went all the way to Vegas, and the first place we eat is the Raisin' Cane's a block from our hotel. It's sad that we had to go there to find one less than a 20 minute drive from us, but such is the life we have chosen.

The Christmas decorations were still up at the Bellagio, and I just had to take this shot.

Of course the outside of the the Bellagio is where the real show happens, when the fountains do their thing.

It really is one of the best free shows in town.

We also got to take in the sights and sounds of the Sirens of TI.

It's a pretty good show, but I think they could use some more lighting. If you're gonna try to take pictures, you need a really fast lens. Also, I think they should look into heating that lagoon. All the men end up in the water at some point, and it was in the 40s and 50s when we were there. They actually had to cancel one show on Tuesday night because it dipped into the 30s.

In the Venetian we found the Gondoliers, but didn't take a ride, because they want way too much money to sit in a boat and take a ride.

They also wanted way too much money for one of these enormous candy apples. I don't care if they are as big as grapefruits, thirteen dollars is too high.

So that was our trip to Vegas. We saw Mystere, the Cirque du Soleil show at Treasure Island, and it was a good one. We've decided that, should the two of us ever go back, we should make it a trip to see all the shows.

Senator. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to Vegas. I didn't know Cane's was in Sin City??

You two look fabulous! The Mrs. looks wonderful in the photo at the Venetian.
But as alliteration's number one fan, shouldn't this be titled Vegas Voyage instead?

Yeah, yeah, I was going to add some pictures from Houston, but didn't have them loaded on the computer. I guess I could change the name.
