We checked out on the TV and left our room. The valet only took a few minutes and soon we were on our way up the strip to the pawn shop. We soon found a parking spot and headed in. It was filming day again! But, we didn't see any of the 'stars' this time. We found out they were in the back doing the filming. I went to get my ring while Melon Man perused the store 3 times. We then found out my ring hadn't even been done yet. I wasn't too happy. They said it would be about 15 minutes. Okay, I could handle that. But, 45 minutes later, we were still there. Melon Man finally headed out to the truck.
We soon got closer and closer to the Hoover Dam area again. This time, I was on the right side of the vehicle to be able to get better pictures. Oh. My. Goodness. I. Am. Going. To. Vomit. (Cindy - YOU will NEVER be able to do this bridge. The 10 and the 91 - a piece of cake compared to this.) This is one stretch of the new road that has been built over higher ground that leads to the new bridge.
I was so glad to be past that part and on our way.
As we came around the corner and onto our street, we both commented that it felt peaceful and like home. The dirty, evil feeling of Vegas was gone. (I later talked with Shelli about living in Vegas. She feels the same about "Vegas" as we do - but she told us that living in Henderson really does feel far away from the evil and sin of downtown. I was a little afraid I might hurt her feelings blogging about the feelings we had, but she completely understood what we felt and was fine with what I wanted to write.) We lounged a little, then we all went to bed around 9. Oh, the feeling of your own bed and pillows.....
