Calico Basin


As promised, here are more pics from our vacation.

The Calico Basin is a beautiful place. Three springs feed this area and it feels like an oasis. Lots of birds and other wildlife.

Check out my friend Andrea's garden. She has fresh corn already. Way to go Andrea!

And check out my friend Audrey's blog here. She is making a film on saving the smallest bears on earth. Good luck!

Have a good week!

The Strip

The Strip - That's where it's happening - Entertainment galore - daytime or nighttime.

If you have never been there, go and see it. You don't have to be a gambler to enjoy it. Lots of things to do and see away from The Strip...Hoover Dam, the desert, museums, state parks, Grand Canyon and so much more...(I sound like a trave agent!).

I never wanted to go to Las Vegas, thought, like so many, nothing but a gambling paradise. And then finally we went out there and I am hooked. I love the weather (300 days of sunshine per year, can't beat that!) and the desert.

What is your favorite vacation spot?

This is Memorial Day weekend in the US and we have a day off on Monday!!! We don't get too many holidays around here. We'll have a few guests and a cook-out. Any plans for Monday, my american blogger friends?

Looking forward to a High School graduation party tomorrow. Hopefully our weather will improve, nothing but rain and rain and more rain since April.

Have a great weekend and for my american blogger friends, have a wonderful Memorial Day.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

After hiking all morning at the Calico Basin, we found this unique asian diner in Summerlin. A wonderful place where one can experience the flavors from five different countries. We love asian food!... My salad was so yummy and the beer, mmmh (sueffig)!

Red Rock Canyon

Just minutes from Las Vegas is Red Rock Canyon. It is a beautiful and impressive place. We went hiking there. Need to have lots of water with you when you go. Very low humidity (only 5%) and suncreen is needed. It is hot out there. The desert was just starting to bloom.
If you have never been there, plan to visit!

See you soon!...I have lots more pictures!

Wishing you a great week ahead!

Fabulous Las Vegas

We are back from our trip. Had a great time, much needed relaxation. The weather was fabulous!

Finally did the tourist "thing" and went to the famous sign at the south end of the Strip. Big Bird was nice and friendly, but Elvis was in no mood to turn around for a photo. I like his pink Cadillac, though.

More pics soon!...Much catching up to do!

Have a great weekend!
