Woke up this morning knowing we wanted to watch the swearing in of our new President Donald John Trump. It was actually a very moving couple of hours and i'm glad we were able to get it here at the campground.
|I love this picture of Abe Lincoln's Bible|
and the one Donald's mom gave him in 1955..
Afterwards we decided to head to Laughlin and the casino area..get a little exercise and some lunch. We knew there was one brewery in town and since our son, Russell is CEO of Sacramento Beer Enthusiasts we knew we had to pay a visit. Really nice place on the 2nd floor of the Colorado Belle, hotel and casino. The bartender we had was awesome! Very personable and good beer. I'm not much of a beer drinker, I like Corona light, but when it's hot outside and on ice. Today we're at a brewery, so do what the locals do..The brewery called, Pints looks like you're on the lower deck of a ship..pretty cool. Prices were right and beer was good.
|What there's a ship docked in Laughlin?!|
|Oh my goodness..the paddle wheel part of the ship...|

|Golden Ale for me...IPA called "What the Puck" for Ken|

After that we decided to go get some lunch. We had stopped on the way to Pints and looked at a couple of menus and decided to try Bumbleberry's in the Pioneer Casino. So we left the brewery (they did have a menu, but decided we'd try something different).
We got there and they had a nice view of the Colorado River. There were only a few people in the restaurant so we asked for a river view booth. She said oh well the other booths are closed and that one hasn't been cleaned yet. She took us to a booth about 2 steps away, we went back to the beginning and said "we'll wait"..took all of 30 seconds to clear the table. So we ordered our food, and we waited. Ken had another beer but i refuse to pay 7 or 8 dollars for a glass of wine..that's probably half full..so I had water, which was fine. We waited and we waited, finally the food came. By that time there were only 3 others in the restaurant and we were the first. Geez...The food was good, and plentiful, but really to make a Caesar salad, with dressing on the side and a ham and cheese melt with fries..did it really need to take so long?! I wish I would have timed it but ridiculous. She drops the check, never asks if i'd like a to go box, (which I ended up asking for) or would Ken like another beer.? it's too bad but we'll never go back, as the service was ridiculous. After we got back I looked at some reviews (because I'm going to write one too) and service was the biggest complaint.
So after that we came back to camp and just enjoying our little cozy home. We will leave here Tuesday and continue south...
