Viva Last Vegas …. And Avast Me Hearties

Treasure IslandWe must have walked past The Treasure Island Resort almost every day …. and never once ventured in, to be frank and robustly honest, we thought it might be a teensy weensy bit trashy  …. but yesterday, it “won” Darrell’s last minute, visit of choice before sadly we fly back home …..
Treasure Island 3His argument was convincing, he said that he had a very spooky, Derek Acorah type of feeling in his water that if we didn’t go we might always wonder “what if” ….. and he also thought that Nigel might rather like all the swashbuckling piratey stuff.
Treasure Island Bucking BronkoWell,  all I can say is that there was definitely something in Darrell’s water.…… Treasure Island was indeed most BRILLIANT! They had cowboy and pirate stuff!  Our favourite bar/restaurant was Gilley’s …… which had a Bucking Bronco … one of Nigel’s all time things to do on his bucket list…..
Treasure Island Bucking Brono 1…he did 45.8 seconds …… we were sooooooooooooooooooo proud!
Treasure Island Bikini Bull RidingGilley’s is, as you can see from the picture above is also famed for its World Famous Bikini Bull Riding ….. however Nigel did not enter that category for his 45.8 seconds ….. thank goodness. And, the aforementioned bull riding in garments of a scanty type nature would obviously not have had anything to do with Darrell’s argument to come …. the little tinker!
Treasure Island Fortune Telling PirateWe had a most fabulous time, we got listen to some proper “Country” music …. one of the things we really wanted to do ……and get to do some boot scootin’ on the line dance floor …… Darrell amazed us all with his grapevines, kick ball changes and cross ball struts,  who’d have believed it?
Treasure Island Fortune Telling Pirate...We ended the perfect day and evening with Darrell having his fortune told ….. oh my life …..he was told to … “Try to cultivate a red haired person.   Therein lies a great deal of happiness for you”  ……and his lucky numbers are …. 1, 6, 26, 32, 36 and 39.  All I can say is - look out all uncultivated red haired people, Darrell is looking for one of you!

Those numbers looks promising lottery ones to me - then maybe if they come up, you can have another trip - and Last Vegas might not be Last at all! JantheFan x

Wow! what a coup for Darrell...could he have possibly taken a peek earlier and knew some outright cowboy and pirate fun was awaiting? Nigel was the man of the day with that mechanical bull riding! Looks like a good time was had by all and what better way to wind down all those fascinating Vegas adventures and the gorgeous western Darrell had many eyes focused on him with his superb line dancing.....Fun, fun, fun time!....Dianne

Well done Nigel! Was duct tape or Velcro involved in his clinging on to the bucking bronco for so long?
Did you find and gold doubloons or pieces of eight on the Treasure Island?
