We got up fairly early and my cousin, Leni, came over to say goodbye to us! We were told that her and Sondra would be heading out to California the following week and would see us at my cousin, Rick’s home the following Sunday for our “welcome-back-home-to-California” Party! Yay! So, it was just a see-you-later to her and a hug and goodbye to Natasha and the boys! Boy, we sure had a great time with family! Loved our time there!
We headed on down to Vegas next! RV drove VERY well! Whew! Also, we started to FINALLY experience those HIGH TEMPS we knew we were going to expect… The scenery was very beautiful… we drove past the Salton Sea and the Inyo Forest. Experienced some crazy drivers heading into Vegas… Not quite sure what their hurry is… 2 lane highway, full of people, not sure how much further up they think they can get if they go around cars, but more power to them… Geez!
We got in to Vegas, at the King’s Row RV Park later in the afternoon. We were pretty tired… heat and driving does that to ya. Ivan just wanted to rest, so Christopher and I went to a Walmart and picked up some water and not sure what else and then rested a bit more before we headed to the Silverton Casino to meet my dear friend, Samia, for dinner. She and I had gone to high school together about 30 years ago!
We hadn’t seen each other for about 25 years! It was soooo good to see her again! Dinner was a Polynesian buffet and it was delicious! We were all pretty tired, though, so we made plans to meet early the following morning to hike Red Rock Canyon and we called it a night.
