Las Vegas

My friend Netto from Charleston recently turned 30. To celebrate he got hotel rooms for a bunch of his friends in Las Vegas.  I was lucky enough to be invited to join in on the fun!

Our Awesome ride to the Birthday Dinner!

July 4th!!!!!!!!!!!!

It just so turned out that some of the main fireworks done in San Diego were shot off in the harbor right in front of our condo.  And since we live on the 17th floor, it was the most perfect place to watch. We invited everyone over to grill out and lay by the pool during the day and watch the fireworks at night. It could not have been a more perfect 4th!!!!

The whole group getting ready to dig in!


Enjoying the view from the balcony……


Almost time for fireworks……………

And here they are!!!!!!!!!!

All crammed on the balcony—What a great day!


Self taken picture with some of the girls! Its been so much fun finally meeting other travelers and getting to know them. These are such sweet girls! I’m so thankful we met them and have been able to get to know each other.

We finally ran into our next door neighbor after living beside each other for about a month.  Our balconies are side by side so its hard to believe it took us so long to meet each other. He was very neighborly and immediately offered to show us around and take us out.


He told us that he wrote poetry…….and its actually pretty good. This is a little poem he wrote for us.


They travel the States with their gritty little style

Never to surrender their awesome Smiles

They attend to their patients with their special little charm

All the while maintaining the smiles of a new born

They can touch your life in so many ways

Turning dark filled times into bright sunny days.

They travel the roads to see the world

Always with the love of a proud father baby girl.

They probably found love at a difficult price

Never asking but always willing and first to sacrifice.

They can capture your attention with a subtle glare

You’ll have to excuse me ladies, you’d make a blind man stare.

So I say to young ladies to whom I’ve just met

I thank you for your special kindness

Because of this I shall never forget.

Vencie Glenn

If you recognize the name its because he used to play in the NFL.. Kinda cool

Del Mar Fair

A couple weeks ago the fair was in town….and I love the fair!! I couldn’t wait to go an get a corndog!!! The South Carolina fair is the best in my opinion, but this one could definitely hold its own.

Really excited about ride tickets………
