Sept. 7, 2013  LAS VEGAS 

Well, we did some more sightseeing, even though it was 110 degrees.  Went to the Hoover Dam, had my doctors appt. on the 5th and all is well.  Then on the 6th my brother Joel and his wife Roberta came over and picked us up to take us to Sams Town,  we went to Billy Bob's Steakhouse for dinner.  Sams Town is one of Vegas's original casinos and they really liked it and the dinner was superb.  We all shared crème brulee for dessert, oh the waistlines.

Sat. Morning we pack up and headed for Hemet, Ca. to the Golden Village Palms rv resort.  We got in about 3:30 pm and it was pouring down rain, power was out, but the rain cooled off the area.  We got settled in an extremely long pull-thru probably 85 feet, very comfortable.  It is a very secure gated park.  The town is really nice with loads of restaurants, walmart of course, we ate out a lot.  We will be here for 3 nights and then head down to Oceanside, Ca, where the temperature is about 75 degrees, a welcoming relief from all this heat.  The pics I am posting are a few places we went, enjoy.

This pic is from the brunch at cousin marvins house, Joel and Roberta look full and rested.
These pics below are of the Hoover Dam, the dam is very low right now because of lack of rain and global warming.  The pic of Joel in front of the welcome to Arizona sign , the dam is on the border of Nevada and Arizona.

This is Peggy Sues fifties diner and well worth the stop in Yermo, Ca.  It has a great café as well as a gift shop and dinosaur park with ponds and ducks in the back, good food.
This duck looked like he was wearing a toupee.
The beautiful San Jacinto Mts, in Idyllwild, Ca, a short ride from Hemet, Ca. 
Café Aroma in Idyllwild.  We had a great lunch there.
This is another look at the San Jacinto Mts.  Somebody actually took a recliner and placed it out on that rock to look at the view, amazing.
