Sunday morning we hummed and hawed about what to do today. We wanted to take the free shuttle from Sam's Town to the Strip sometime...should we do it today or tomorrow? We finally decided on today.
So at about 2:00, we headed off, stopping at the office to find out where we catch the shuttle (couldn't remember from 5 1/2 years ago when we were last here). We caught the 2:20 shuttle, arriving at Harrah's about twenty minutes later. Steve snapped this shot out of the bus window of a Ferris wheel as we neared our destination, apparently it's called High Roller Observation Wheel..
Here are pictures taken along the way.

Rock n Reilly's! What we weren't expecting was $8/beer plus tax! Thinking we had just picked an expensive place, we soon learned this was not the case...everyplace we had a beer along the Strip was expensive! Sure a far cry from yesterday's happy hour at Sam's Town where a round (beer and wine) cost $5!
That meant we had a couple of hours to kill until the next shuttle at 9:15...okay, let's find a bar in Harrahs' and have a beer. Those two beer cost us $20 including tip...okay, we'll only be having one of those, and we'll be "nursing it".
After we had finished our beer, we wandered around Harrah's, playing a couple of slots...nothing serious, I think we both lost $5.
Love the statues of a couple with cash spilling out of their suitcase at Harrah's...
We caught the 9:15 shuttle arriving back at Sam's Town at about 9:40. Exhausted we limped home on sore tired legs and feet...and collapsed into bed! By the way, I clocked 20,000 steps on my FitBit today!
