We had a lovely day with Pixie yesterday once we worked out that the Ritz Carlton in Henderson is actually on Lake Las Vegas. this is even more ludicrously fake than the strip and more noticeably for being in the desert. beautiful view across the lake to the strip and we had breakfast by the lake, then had a high score on shopping at the Primm outlets, a delicious dinner at Shibuya (tempura crab legs much easier to manage and butter ponzu dipping sauce is yum, as is scallop sashimi in mango mint sauce and sea bass steamed with black tapioca and pop rocks on the mangos sashimi and apricot miso and plum creme brulee; everyone at Shibuya is so sweet and it was lovely to share one of our favourite places with Pixie. we got to introduce her to Cirque du Soleil at O as well, which was as stunning as ever. We went to the early show which doesn't have an interval; worth knowing for next time. thanks to serendipity for putting us both in the same place for the day ;)
So I scored yummy pastries from Bouchon, sbisson scored coffee from Bean and leaf and we're driving straight line roads out into the desert, watching the snow on Mount Charleston and the distant snow of the Sierras and the folded colours of the nearer mountains advancing on us like monstrous fins.
