Las Vegas with the Sharkeys – April 2011

Las Vegas at night

Las Vegas at night

Bebe & Howie spent a week in a Summer Bay condo in Las Vegas accompanied by Loretta & Michael Sharkey. The outrageous architecture visible in every direction contributed to a collection of more than 600 photographs and resulted in 52 new album pages. Fifteen of these photos are included here.

Michael & Loretta ready to tour.

Loretta dropped a dollar in a slot machine at every casino. This one is in the Mandalay Bay.

Michael slipped out at night for some spectacular photos including the one above.

Even Venice’s Rialto Bridge is reproduced in LasVegas. We lunched under a painted blue sky near the Bernini fountain in Caesar’s Palace.

Mme. Tassauds wax museum kept our cameras very busy. Here’s Loretta & Bebe with Holly Berry and Howie with Beyonce.

Howie & Bebe lunched in the gardens at the Bellagio. We witnessed a dancing water display at the Bellagio that evening.

One day was spent visiting Red Rock Canyon which included desert flowers and Native American pictographs.

Another day we drove, flew and bussed to view the Grand Canyon. The Hoover Dam was visible from our Scenic Airlines flight. The Colorado River and the Canyon can be seen in this view.

A special treat was a day exploring the Hoover Dam inside and out. Looking downstream from a tunnel inside the dam reveals the new highway bridge and the East and West power stations. The face of the dam can be seen in this view.

Our last night in Vegas we had dinner at Caluccio’s Tivoli Gardens site of the Liberace museum. They had a REAL piano bar.
