Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Hoover Dam and the Strip at night

Headed to Hoover Dam for the morning to see what changes have been made since the last time we were there.
They are in the process of building a new bridge that will divert the traffic from the Dam. So thanks to 9/11, you will no longer be able to drive across the Dam.
Hover Dam, the water level is about 100 ft. below normal.
After leaving the Dam, we drove about two miles to Lake Mead and parked right on the water so Joyce could get her toes wet.
Then about 6:00 pm, we went to the strip for dinner at the Harley Davidson. We had a table outside right on the walk so we could people watch while enjoying our dinner. We then spent the rest of the evening doing the tourist thing and walking in and out of the casino's.
We took the elevator to the top of the Eiffel Tower to get the pictures below.

It was a beautiful evening and as always, Vegas was alive with the lights, people, and traffic. We have decided to spend a couple more days and try to take in a show.
