We just arrived in Sausalito! We are staying in the most charming cottage chantey built into the mountainside overlooking the San Francisco Bay and Sam is passed out next to me from an active day yesterday, a late night and then an early wake up call! So I figured this would be a good time to blog. I cracked open the bottle of white wine that our air bnb hosts left for us and I’m giving it a whirl. I don’t normally drink(like) white wine, but since it’s here and we’re on vacation…I figure I’ll be a little adventurous 😉 it makes me wonder how many people think ‘oh not red wine‘ when they stay at our lake house…
Anyway Vegas was good. One of my favorite parts of going to Vegas with Sam is a trip to one of the all you can eat Sushi restuarants! Which also includes other dishes, sides, beer, sake and dessert! We all order different rolls and then share everything and keep going until we hit the point of needing to unbutton our pants. Americans at their finest… It really is a treat though! We hardly ever eat sushi in Austin because it can be pretty pricey! So I always look forward to it! We went to Sushi Tachi in North Las Vegas off on Centennial PKWY. Super yummy! Yesterday on our last day, Sam didn’t have to work so we headed back to the mountains where it was a cool 80 degree, partly cloudy and windy day to escape the 111degree+ heat advisory weather in Vegas!
We went up a trail that we hadn’t yet done at Mt. Charleston, Trail Canyon Trail, a steep two miles up and two miles down. Since it was a Thursday we pretty much had the trail to ourselves and it was super peaceful and really beautiful with a great view at the top! I really recommend checking out Mt. Charleston if you find yourself in Vegas. It’s a nice little break from the neon lights and noisy slot machines and a great way to work off some of that alchy! Or those food buffets! Or that sushi. But really, it’s just a nice outdoor activity.
