A Day Off In Laughlin

Yesterday, we spent a quiet morning just catching up on correspondence and reading.  We finally emerged from the 5th wheel around 11am, and took a drive over to Bullhead City.  We bought a few things at Safeway, and then drove over to the Avi Casino,  There may be a way to get there from the Nevada side, but we drove through Bullhead City and then back over the Colorado River.  We drove through the RV Park just to get an idea. 

They have are gravel, instead of cement pads, but with full hook ups.  The Fall Marketplace Extravaganza going on.  There were booths with jewelry, pet goodies, artwork, etc.  I saw a few geodes I liked, but they were too heavy to carry around in a 5th wheel.  We did a walk about through the casino.  It was full, but a little too smokey to stay. 

We headed back to Laughlin, and had lunch at the Aquarius, and then made our contribution to the economy over the next 1-2 hours.  The Aquarius looks to be the newest casino or at least most recently refurbished,  It was clean and fresh looking with high ceilings, and good air cleaners.  We weren't too aware of the cigarette smoke.

We went outside to enjoy the River Walk.  I was a little disappointed.  It has deteriorated since we were here 20 years ago.  I was looking forward to seeing all the little hummingbirds feeding on the shrubbery that lines the walk.  It must be the wrong time of year for the hummingbirds as there were none to be seen.  Just alot of flies.

Of note, there is a Preferred Outlet Mall (previously known as Horizon Outlet Mall) across from the Aquarius.  We didn't go explore, but I will the next time we are here.

Today, we are off to Ehrenberg.  Out last stop on the way to Phoenix (Laveen).  It will be good to anchor down for a bit, take out the lawn chairs, and eat off the regular plates.
