Once the lists were written (with bolded emergency numbers), and Alice was safely handed over to Gran and Grandad, we jetted over to the airport to, barely make our flight to the city that never sleeps (wait - is that New York? well, in this case it's Vegas!)
We stayed at the Treasure Island hotel and casino right on the Las Vegas strip. Vegas is everything you've seen in the movies - bright lights, non-stop entertainment, decadent food, big money, and beautiful people. We tried to strike a good balance between taking it all in and taking a break...
Note the drastic colour change - not a change in sedimentary strata - but the old water level for Lake Mead behind the dam. Quite worrying...
Amazing rock formations at the Valley of Fire state park.
Thank-you strange desert man for taking our picture...
(Actually a self-timer pic)
Now there are some awesome sedimentary layers!
Chocolate french-toast brioche with banana custard, rasberries and amaretto maple syrup.

What Alice would have enjoyed the most - the fountains!!
