JULY 11, 2013 (Thursday)
We were up and down at the pool by 10:30 AM. We started in the hot tub. It was tolerable today. We’ve tried it before and could not get past the burning feet or hands with the metal pole to get into the hot tub. Michael pushed the button for the bubbles but it didn’t work so he turned the knob. After a couple of minutes the person who works as the valet came up and asked if we were okay. Apparently the red button he first pushed was the emergency button, which is right next to the switch. We apologized for causing his extra work.
After about ten minutes we went into the pool. We did our laps leisurely, and just enjoyed the coolness of the pool and exercising. We watched while three of the female housekeepers worked around the pool cutting and trimming all the greenery that was getting kinda wild.
Back in our room, we discussed what we wanted to do today. We opted to go walk to the bus stop about a block away and take the Sierra Spirit bus. It was a free bus, but now costs a whopping 25 cents, but 10 cents if you’re over 60. It was fun being on the bus and seeing areas we hadn’t seen before. We got off near the end of the line at the University of Nevada campus. We looked at some of the buildings and walked over the bridge at the “lake” where swans and ducks were swimming and resting.
We debated whether to take the bus back, or just “hoof” it. We decided it was only about fifteen blocks back, it was a nice day, and that we should walk it.
It was a lovely walk back and we got to go through the blocked off area where they had old and new vehicles, off road vehicles, bikes, food booths, live music, booths of clothing and items for off road-ing. Fun.
We stopped at Taco Del Mar and got some linner to go. I got a small burrito and Michael got a large burrito (approximately $12.00). After we ate we had a small nap and Michael spent the afternoon working on the blog, adding facebook, pinterest, google and twitter buttons. Feel free to like us on any of those things. Thanks. We’re debating if we’re going to go out to Wingfield Park and see what’s happening.
Hope your day was good!
