Las Vegas Strip

Saturday, we were heading home, but our flight wasn't until later in the evening.  We had a really good, but expensive breakfast at Avenue Cafe in MGM Grand.  After getting our stuff packed up, I went out on the balcony to enjoy the views from the 36th floor one more time.

Then we headed down and checked out.  The hotel was nice enough to hold our luggage so we could spend the day walking around Vegas.  We first headed south a little ways to Luxor, my favorite of the Vegas hotels on account of the Egyptian theme.

Sandy wanted to get a souvenir glass so we headed to Excalibur next and got some daiquiris.  Then we started heading north along the strip, stopping to check out the casinos.  At one point, I could see the MGM Signature towers across the street and pictured us way up at the top.

Passing Bellagio, we stopped to see the fountains again and then headed inside.  The Conservatory and Botanical Gardens had some pretty displays of flowers in the shape of peacocks.

Sandy played slots for a little while and we checked out the stores at the Forum at Caesars Palace.  We went as far as Circus Circus and then started making our way back as the sun set behind the mountains.  We enjoyed the lights of the city for a while before getting dinner at Buca Di Beppo in MGM Grand.

After dinner we got our luggage and headed for the airport.  The flight home was uneventful and I slept the entire time.
