Lake Tahoe, Carson City and Reno, Nevada

We are in or last three days in Nevada at the Bordertown Casino & RV park.  On Sunday we went to Lake Tahoe and drove around the entire lake.  We had breakfast at a bakery in Brockway and then headed up and around Lake Tahoe.  We stopped in South Tahoe for a craft fair, but didn't buy anything.  Lake Tahoe is gorgeous and the water is clear.  It is surrounded by beautiful snow capped mountains,  expensive homes, resorts and cabins.  You need real money to live and vacation here. Monday we went to Carson City and toured the Capitol.  It was old and very small, compared to the beautiful capitol buildings we saw Arkansas, Iowa and Utah. How small?  The Assemblymen have no desks, no pages, no fancy chambers, they have folding chairs.  We also went by the governor's mansion, but this time, we didn't take the tour.  The next day we went to Reno and did some gambling at the Atlantis.  Debbie and I usually only play the cheap slots, as we are not real gamblers. We have worked too hard, too long to give it all away. Debbie played the 1 & 5 cent slots and won $ 5.75 in about 15 minutes. I played the 25 cent video poker and quite when I got back to even money.
