I called Wayne on Wednesday to see if he was willing to trek around Project City Center with me on Thursday. The foolish child accepted. It’s always wonderful to have a good friend to spend an afternoon with – especially when you’re going to spend it walking up and down the Strip and going into parking garages to access the best spots to take pictures from. And then to make it even better, lunch was on the agenda after the trek. Yes, a Project City Center update is coming. But first the Bellagio Conservatory teaser…it’s under construction – but what the hell isn’t in Vegas? The whole damn town does a major change-over every six months or so.

The latest theme is one that us oldies remember. Except I don’t ever recall seeing a Corvette in those days, even if it ran over me I wouldn’t have known what it was. I don’t think anyone in the areas I lived in, even knew what they were either. Click on the thumbnails. Continue reading Route 66, Bellagio’s Conservatory
WOW! What a wonderful breath of air, all fresh and moist, filled with flowers and light, it’s completely beautiful. Normally the butterflies areprotected from us by acircular netting home, now they are in an enclosed house that we can walk through to view them. Continue reading Bellagio Conservatory in Spring
This is a short picture update of Chinese New Year in daylight. And I now know it’s the ‘year of the Boar’ and not the year of the pig. But damned if that little pink thing doesn’t look likea pig, and its ears wiggle too. Umnhhh! Continue reading Bellagio Conservatory in Daylight
Wayne had a request. He wanted to give a dealer/friend some reciprocal dealer/player appreciation and suggested that we go to the Monte Carlo, plus it had been some time since Wayne had been to the Monte Carlo. Color me in that graph – like eight years since I walked through there and that’s what I did, a walk through, I didn’t stop to look around. Continue reading The Pan Games Play Monte Carlo
Out with the old, in with the new. Bellagio’s Gardens alwaysplease the senses – no matter the theme – it is a complete delight, from the colors and design to the moist, pleasant air that one can feel as soon as they enter. Continue reading Chinese New Year
Twas just before Christmas, with no snow in sight, Bellagio’s Conservatory is a beautiful sight.
Anyone thatvisits Bellagio, and goes anywhere other than the casino floor, sport’s book, or poker room, knows the gardens are a sight to behold. A few months ago there were trains running through all different terrains and climates, using the Banyan tree in the theme. Now fall has arrived and with it the scent of cinnamon spice is in the air. That’s one of the most sense delighting facts about stepping into the gardens, the fresh change in the air and a climate change, usually a little more moist, removing onefrom the dry desert atmosphere, and now it smells like cinnamon spice too.
