Las Vegas


It’s now time to head home after a very fast paced 12 days here in Vegas.
We’ve played 4 rounds of golf in over 36 degree heat – one day was 40 at least we are certain!!!!
We’ve flown up to the Grand Canyon in a light plane, taken a helicopter ride to the Colorado river at the bottom and then all back again.
We’ve been out to the Hoover Dam and been to the bottom of that and made sure the generators were still working – they were!
We’ve walked The Strip I don’t know how many times!!
As our bus driver said yesterday, and we totally agree.....
The casinos here
•    Have no exit signs anywhere – you are supposed to stay inside and gamble

Time is flying by here – have now played 2 days of golf on the Bali Hai and The Royal Links Golf courses – both beautiful courses and not sure of a daily fee if we had to pay that but all part of our package so not worried. But what’s more I’ve even won the last 2 days amongst the ladies!! A sleeve of 3 golf balls times 2 plus about 6 I found on the course today so am up a dozen balls to date!
It was a VERY hot day out there today on the links style course – probably around 40 degrees we reckon but the course staff were fabulous, think we saw the drinks cart about 4 times, one guy running round with icy poles for everyone which for anyone organising ladies open days which turn out to be really hot – they are a great idea and a nice surprise when everyone is so hot.

For those who didn't know - we've gone again!! It was a typical 13hr long haul over to Los Angeles then we had a delayed 6 hr wait for transfer up to Las Vegas on Wednesday. Arrived in here about 3pm so after a quick shower we managed a couple of hours sleep before venturing out into the strip for a quick stroll. Although that's an understatement - a quick stroll along the strip is like a 100m fight through the crowds!
