Some photos from a recent vacation. It was my first time to Vegas. What a trip! It's wild out there. I can't get over how BIG everything is. And how everyone (but me, lol) seemed to walk around with a alcoholic drink in their hands- at all hours of the day. There was so much to see- and not enough time to see it. Oh well, there's always next time.

I enjoyed walking around and seeing all the sights and people- I am a big people watcher. And I loved the pool- once I got over the fact that it was on the 22 floor of the hotel- I'm kinda, sorta afraid of heights. I loved just about everything I saw- the lights, the shows, everything. It did teach me that I need a tripod. I must have walked miles and miles every day. In fact- I walked so much (in flip flops) that a week after I came back I had to go to the doctor- my feet and legs were still swollen. Seems that spraining my ankle as I got off the plane in Vegas and then walking on it all week-(think tough Irish stock) did nothing to help the situtaion. I now have muscle and tissue damage to my left leg. Oh well, at least it wasn't the deep vein thrombosis the doctor first thought it was- so it was worth it. Memo to self...get rid of the flip flops.

I thought about deleting the photo at right but decided I like how it looks. 

More later...
