San Diego & Las Vegas

While staying with friends and family in San Diego, we spent most of our time by the pier at Pacific Beach.  James and I took advantage of the 80+ degree days to catch up on some much needed sleep on the beach.

We left Las Vegas a few days ago after staying in the Stratosphere.  I think Vegas is one of my favorite places in the world.  I didn't gamble much, but I was able to win at the all day buffet in our hotel cafeteria.  I think I have 10 extra pounds right now that I probably needed.  

The temperature on the strip at night was down into the 30s, but we were able to get a little sun during the day when the temp rose to 65 degrees.

One of the best views in Vegas came from atop our hotel.  We could see the whole strip and "Old Vegas" while standing on the balcony, which is 109 stories up.
