buy a car......take a trip

I don't know about you, but the first thing we do when we buy a new car is take a roadtrip.  So on Friday we headed for Laughlin, the middle of a major heatwave...
this was in the shade...ugh...

On Saturday, we drove down to London Bridge.   We visited there a few years back and really enjoyed the quaint shops and English pub.    It has changed a lot.....almost all the stores are closed and everything is in major need of refurbishment.   So we took a couple pictures and headed off in search of food and air conditioned locations.

Had a great meal of prime rib and crab legs (well, hubby1 had prime rib and crab legs...I enjoyed the incredible salad bar).   Donated some cash to the casino and headed home on Sunday.

Car ran great.....averaged 38.6 mpg which is more than double what the mustang averaged.   overall, a great weekend!


  1. Glad it was fun! Have been to Laughlin before. Gorgeous.

  2. What's Laughlin like? MY WIFE and I have vacationed in Nevada a few times, but we never got to Laughlin.

  3. Wow! What amazing gas mileage!!!!

    It's been a while since I've been up there:) We always seem to go there during the hottest part of the year!
