Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Fremont Street and more…

20.10.17 Boulder City certainly lives up to its name. Arid, rocks… 

Lake Mead. We were one of the last boats allowed out on Lake Mead due to the wind… which got worse. So what does Ange do? Speed up! Soaked at the front and back of the boat.

 Lots of carp. 


The Hoover Dam on the Nevada/ Arizona state line. Is a spectacular feat of engineering. Video >>>>

We then drove the rental car back to Fremont Street. Where we had been warned there were ‘freaks!’ This was the old Las Vegas. It is the Las Vegas that Ange said she had envisioned and we felt quite at home. 

Nothing to see here… 

Mmmmm Chilli Dogs. 

We then spent our evening firstly watching the Bellagio Fountains water show


Later wandering round The Strip. Watching a covers band in the street, buskers, went to the Flamingo casino to see them. They were in bed. Daytime visit then! 

Video here >>>

It was rather entertaining and a great atmosphere . With a variety of tramps, buskers, drunks and folk enjoying ourselves. 

Talented Balloon lady at The Flamingo. She made a guitar and tarot card. 


Great day! Knackered

13.10.17 Universal Studios pt 2 inc Jaws & Animal Actors 

After a hearty hotel breakfast. We headed out on the highway. 

A day at Universal Studios. 


Top tips. Get the front of line ticket. If you have big boobage. Don’t waste your time queueing for Harry Potter. They won’t fit :-0 Had a great time on the Transformers ride, Jurassic Park water ride was fun and wet! 

Enjoyed the tour of Universal Studio lot. Until the Fast and Furious finale. The abruptly and prematurely ended after a little shit of a kid jumped out the cart, setting off all the sensors. 

The live animal show (Including rescue animals) was wonderful. 

Getting stuck in LA traffic on highway 101 for ages. Enabled us to view the array of tents for tramps on the banks by the highway.
