Jim and I started our day with our .99 cent breakfast - ham and eggs with a side order of hash browns. Can't beat that with a stick, right? I'd rather throw money away in the slots than the breakfast table!
This is AVI casino that is connected to the RV park where we are staying.
This mural is painted on the parking garage. I like how the shadows of the palm trees fall across the mural.
We had access to the hotel pool and beach. We didn't go into the pool area, but did walk by the beach and lagoon area. It was beautiful.
Our casino was located about 12 miles south of town, so we had to drive into town to visit the other casinos.
This is looking down the Colorado River near the Davis Dam.
In front of all the casinos along the Colorado is a river walk.
The river is so clean and clear. And the current is so swift. We watched this poor duck fight to go upstream.
I was amazed to see palm trees growing right in the water. This is looking straight down in the water.
You can take a water taxi across the river to the other side. Here are couple of unoccupied taxis.
This taxi is make a run!
This is the Colorado Belle casino. It is a replica of a 19th century Mississippi paddlewheel riverboat that is 600 feet in length and 6 decks high.

We went into about 5 casinos and then we had our limit. For today, anyway! The smoke was really getting to me, as was the sound and the flashing lights. It's a miracle I didn't get a migraine! And I'm here to report that our luck didn't change. We're still losers. Although I can play with a $10 bill for at least 30-45 minutes! That's something isn't it?
I'm sure glad we're not going to be here during "Ride" week, when over 50,000 bikers are expected to show up. Of course, that would have given me an excuse to wear my leather bra with the fringes hanging off of it.
A blonde went to Las Vegas. She had been in the casino for about an hour, and realized she was thirsty. So she went to the pop machine in the hall. She put $1.00 in and a Pespi came out, she put another $1.00 in and another Pespi came out, she put one last $1.00 in and another Pespi came out. A man saw her, and he said: "What are you doing?" And the blonde said: "Duh!! Winning!!!
