KayCee hasn't spent any time away from us and we needed a break. I have used the Petsmart Pet Hotel in Henderson Nevada, a suburb of Las Vegas for daycare so I called them up and made a reservation for
her to go spend the day. We are going to do that again this coming Monday and have another day out! She gets tired out playing with the other dogs, and we get tired walking, shopping and seeing the sights!This is KayCee being naughty and acting bored when we came home after leaving her alone! She is supposed to be on top of that blanket! We drove by the Wayne Newton Compound - Shenandoah Ranch, and about the time DH took a picture he captured the side of a black van! So hopefully we will get that shot the next trip in town. It was a cloudy day and fairly cool, a great day for walking around and only had a very few sprinkles in the morning. There's still just a hint of snow on Mt. Charleston behind us.
It isn't difficult to find things to keep busy here in Nevada. We are enjoying the Resort and all it has to offer, and exploring the town of Pahrump. Only about 70 miles from Las Vegas up over the hills, we had to go into town and have a day out! The McCarran Airport is booming! Flights in and out every other minute and so low you sometimes think they aren't going to clear the fence!
This resort is really quiet and laid back. A beautiful property, it reminds me of a swank hotel when you enter the lobby! Our site has a really nice outdoor kitchen and I've been taking full advantage of the grill. I've missed that, and I have even been trying out some new recipes! This one is Stuffed Pheasant Breasts wrapped in Bacon. The gym and locker rooms are very special, offering seperate men's and women's indoor hot tub and saunas. An excellent gym facility with all the latest in free weights and machines for strength training, tread mills, cross trainers, steppers and bicycles. The complex has a small store with emergency RV supplies, snacks and drinks and another part of the building has been converted to a beauty salon. There are several meeting rooms available and a Bar and Grille. The laundry room has two lines of washers and dryers that are very nice, worked well for me! The double decker pools and hot tub area are the most relaxing in the morning and a great place to have morning coffee or meet with friends. I will definitely stay here if we ever come this way again. I can tell it's definitely spring as I've been getting into the cleaning out mode. Getting rid of clothes we don't need and going through the basement compartments trying to decide what we really need and get rid of what we don't. We have to do that once or twice a year or it almost gets overwhelming. This morning the All Around RV Service came and installed the new Kwikee Step kit on our entry step that had stuck in the out position when we left Buckeye, AZ. He also took a look at our door latch problem and readjusted the door pole, and will be replacing the handle. We will definitely be ready to rock and roll when it's time to leave and I'll breathe a sigh of relief, when the step retracts and the door will open and close without the threat of locking us out!
It was fun to drive around the town and let someone else take the pictures for once. There were lots of people on the street for a week day in April and there's been lots of changes to the bottom of the Strip. Monday I plan on getting my daily exercise walking up and down this street!
