I made it to Las Vegas but not before I saw a shoe repair shop shaped like a shoe and the worlds tallest thermometer.
I stopped at the worlds second largest open pit mine in Boron, Ca too! They mine borates. It was a neat stop. Then, I finally made it to Vegas.
The Bender Jamboree was awesome! Four days of bluegrass in a fun, intimate setting! I’m typically a back of the room concert goer. I like having space to move and I don’t like the jostling and aggression one needs to hold their space in front. Not a problem here, when bluegrass legend Del McCoury is watching…everyone behaves!
I definitely spent more time on the rail than usual. So many of my favs played, they were all great. I really have to stretch to find a complaint.
I even managed some time to knit, at the pool of all places. There was lots of shade! Whoever designed this pool should get an award! I don’t think I’ve ever been to a pool anywhere that was so lovely. And that mural!! Absolutely love it.
I’m still working on the Dotted Rays pair, I only brought the pink/red one with me. It’s making good progress but I’m running out of colors. Next stop: Sin City yarns!!! I’ve heard rumors of a Harry Potter themed cafe as well…sign me up!
