More holiday journal

Day 7

On the Lake


We’ve extended our stay here for another day, it’s so lovely. I think Lilly would spend the rest of the holiday here, by we’re of to Las Vegas tomorrow.
We spent another lovely day on the boat. We had a picnic lunch and swam in the lake
IT WAS COLD!
The girls both had a go at driving the boat and really enjoyed it, despite the water-skiers giving Lilly heart attacks.



This evening we took the boat to the village and had supper there. I had fantastic ribs and Lilly had the most enormous dish of seafood pasta.
We will be sorry to leave tomorrow, but we’ve got Las Vegas to look forward to.

On To Las Vegas


We left the cabin early this morning to travel to Las Vegas.
The journey was long, but the scenery was interesting and we came across some interesting little places on the way.
We stopped at Peggy Sue’s diner for breakfast. It’s a fantastic place and the owner’s dad showed us around. There are pictures and memorabilia of all the 1950’s stars all over the place.

We also stopped of at the world’s largest thermometer which showed the temperature to be 104 degrees!


We arrived in Las Vegas and after booking into our lovely rooms at the New York New York hotel we had a look around.
Las Vegas is an interesting place, completely different after dark.
We have walked so far along The Strip that our feet ache!
