Some stations in Las Vegas are nicely landscaped with palm trees and other landscaping like this one. Many also have several one-armed bandits located inside too. It seemed so weird to me at first, these days I pay them no attention except for the people parked in front of them watching their money go down the old slot… Drop your money in my slot, I’ll put it to better use! Damn, did I just say that?
Up they go! Safe travels people, thanks for visiting Las Vegas! ✈️💰
In this view I’m looking east, the Strip is on the left. The Mandalay and the Luxor are seen along with others.
Have you been in either of these casinos? I haven’t! They must be for the Locals as they are a long way northwest of the Strip on Rancho.
I messed up this photo real good aye! Too much fun with overlays and such. I’m not a fan of The Orleans…
I had some things to take care of today so away I go with Nikon in hand. I finally have a nice pair of flip flops! Passing by the Rampart Casino I grabbed a couple photos quickly. This is a lovely casino inside and out. Perhaps more of a Locals casino as is the Red Rock Casino a bit west of here. But Seafood? Oh hell no. My rule number one: If it doesn’t look good, don’t eat it. And Lobster is a bottom feeder too! Gross.
Last night I snapped some photos of the oil painting above my couch, I scrambled them up good!
On the way to the Neon Museum the other day I was passing over a high bridge and thought to grab the Nikon for this photo, I was very surprised with it’s clarity considering I was moving along at forty-plus miles per hour. Point and shoot!
Just the entrance sign! Rampart Casino is a great casino, the casino proper doesn’t stink to high heavens with cigarette smoke like some do, the rest of the place is clean and well maintained. I recommend if you want to lose your money! Hey, what else are casinos for anyway? I have NEVER gambled in my life by the way… 😎
One for the haters. Too bad. I snapped this on Spring Mountain Road near the Strip, waiting for the light.
You can’t tell in these photos but this aircraft and every other that passed directly over me on approach this morning were cocked a bit sideways as they approached the runway. As you may have already read on this blog, the valley has been in a strong wind event for two days now as a powerful low pressure system makes itself known. I commend every pilot everywhere for having the skills and confidence to take on the crosswinds. So much responsibility! And the balls to do such a thing. Much more to come!
In the distance is the Queens Ridge Condominiums and the Suncoast Hotel and Casino. Suncoast is a funny name as we have no coastline anywhere near Las Vegas! They are about five or six miles south of my location.
Just south of that nasty stripper joint you’ll have a nicer view!
Molly’s is another local privately owned casino, there are several more but Molly’s seems to be everywhere. After six years in Las Vegas, I’ve never once put one single red American cent in those damned one armed bandits! Regardless of being Molly’s or one of the big casinos on the Strip, don’t make them more wealthy!
