Tanya's Daily Scoop
CURRENTLY TRAVELING IN: LAS VEGAS, NV
What Happens in Vegas...
from....Sunny and HOT (91F degrees at 7:30am)
It's actually quite amazing when I sit back and think about all the places in the world that I write the Daily from!!! Dare I say it's - remarkable!
So anyhoo, the SCOOP from yesterday...
On our way to good 'ol Sin City, we had made a pitstop in Baker, CA - 77 miles outside of Las Vegas, and home to the WORLD'S LARGEST thermometer.
The sign weighs 76,812 pounds and is stands 134 feet tall.
Having even stopped in Baker a number of times - I have never stopped at the famous sign until yesterday - so unlike me!
Once we had taken our fill of fun photos, we continued on our way to Vegas and to breakfast - boy was my stomach rumbling...
Ahead of time (because I plan EVERYTHING) I chose to try a fairly new (but completely new to me) vegan cafe named 'Violette's', which was bright and colorful, and had a fairly decent sized menu for us to choose from. Both Dave and I going with some elixir shots, freshly pressed "green" juice and a Build-your-Own combo and then plowing through the platters that were served!
Finding what he needed and the new point and shoot camera that I would've bought yesterday - but they only had the floor model...
We were then off to make a local favorite stop at Ronald's Donuts!!!
I always wanted to be with a man who wears Ascots. Not sure why it took him soooo many years to be THAT guy!
Finally arriving at the Cosmopolitan, checking in and finding a brilant room with an AMAZING view!
Same staff, same decor, and equally great food!
Because umm WHAT ON EARTH are some of them WEARING?!
Anyway since food rules and I'm ready for breakfast, I'm gonna bid you adieu and catch ya back here tomorrow for the start of a brand spanking new week!
Until then, please enjoy some Vegas sights:
