a day trip to Laughlin NV

Good morning.
We took a little drive down to Laughlin NV. yesterday. It's a small resort area down at the corner of Nevada on the Colorado River meeting Arizona. It took us about 2 hours from the northern part of the Vegas Valley, mainly due to all the traffic in Vegas. No easy way to get from the northern valley to the southern valley. You either take the 215 all the way around, or you go through the city. Either way, it takes a lot of time. But it was a nice drive. We had been there once before, but many many years ago.
Here's a few not so good pics....

The boat in the pic below is a water taxi that shuttles people back and forth to the 7 or 8 casino resorts along the river.
We started out at Harrah's at the far end and spent the day working ourselves to the other end. Checked out all the casino resorts, the views, and had lunch. Did a little gambling, but as usual, no luck. Got back to Vegas right in the middle of rush hour. Took some time to make it back home, but got home without incidence.
In other news.....
The weather has definitely cooled this week after a warmer than normal fall, with our daytime temps now in the mid to upper 60's. Nighttime temps in the 40's to low 50's. Wore long pants for the first time since we got here yesterday.
We also picked up a couple of wall cabinets we want to hang in the garage. Got 2 on Wed. and plan on getting 2 more. So this weekend will probably be assembling them and hanging them on the wall. Will be nice to get the garage more organized. And so far, we have 2 turkeys and plan to get 2 more this weekend. They are not as cheap as back in Michigan, but still a real good value.
And speaking about prices, we've found some things are cheaper out here, and some are not. But that's to be expected considering regional pricing. So over all, I think we're spending about the same here as back in Michigan.
Well, that's it for now...
