Back in beautiful Las Vegas and time to relax for a few days. Sunday we ended up doing some shopping in the outlet mall and Walmart before going out for dinner. We walked down the strip and went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner instead of driving.
Monday we got going fairly early and we drove to Death Valley. It was a couple of hours drive but definitely worth it. It was 118 Fahrenheit at the visitor centre so I stood next to the sign to get a photo. Some of the park was closed due to recent flooding such as Sandy Creek where the pup fish are due to flooding. Also the Devils golf course was closed. Still did the artists palette and another couple of short walks before getting to Badwater Basin. The temp gauge on the car hit 50 Celsius and it was so hot to breath. By the time we did that it was time to drive back to couple of hours to vegas. Went to Red Lobster for dinner which was so nice.
Tuesday we went to the Clark County Museum which was really interesting as it had houses which had been moved from different areas in the years since Las Vegas had been settled. They re sat the houses in the museum precinct and restored all of them. It really was quite good. Give the car another wash to make it look pretty for our last day.
Wednesday was home time. With a 5 hour drive back to LA. We stopped at the Vegas Harley store for a look before heading off. Stopped at Popeyes Chicken on the way before we arrived at Culver City Westfield. We stopped there with an hour before the rental had to be returned and stretched our legs. Tanked up with gas and drove the 5 mins back to Hertz and said goodbye to Bandit. The 3 weeks went really quickly and I can't believe I'm now sitting in the lounge drinking free spirits you pour yourself and eating all sorts of fancy foods. Feeling smashed on 2 drinks! For those who are curious we covered 7500km in the rental car and averaged 9.5 l/100 gas economy. Such a good car.
