The Fabulous Life of Danie & Angie: IV

After the concert we ended up falling asleep. It had been a long day. on Saturday, June 9th, we again popped up at 8. But this day was sadder than any other. We had to check out by noon. I took a bunch of pictures of the room and bathroom and of course more pictures of the amazing view.



We also took more pictures of the bed. Its a Sealy Wynn Dream Bed and it costs about $2500. I want one. I promise it's worth every single dollar. We realized we needed to put the giant bed to scale. So we added an Angie. She's the size of a real person, who is a little on the short side.

And now on to the pictures. First the inside:



Now looking to the outside. From our room you can see a little waterfall and screen that I imagine is used for a nighttime, poolside, light show. You can also see the outside of some really nice suites down at the bottom. You know that they're really nice because they have their own pools. Please pardon the reflection.



Also, Donald Trump is building a tower just off the strip. I don't know how much they cost but if you don't know, you won't be getting one. They sold out within the first 4 days of being on the market. They will be a shiny gold color when finished. For now they're just a little gold on a few floors. Look at it now and in a year you can say you knew it when. If you're really sad you missed out, I hear there's going to be a second tower. So get your millions ready.
Otherwise, the strip is looking lovely.



On our last morning at the Wynn, I took a lot of "in case I'm never here again" pictures. I especially like the view of the hotel from the pool. Just look at that cloudless sky. Believe it or not, it does get old. Anyway, here's what we did. We lounged at the pool in the morning, then showered at the last possible moment. Angie pushed our check-out time back an hour so we could go to brunch and still charge it to the room. What?

Here are two pictures of the buffet entrance:



The buffet (aptly called The Buffet) was as delicious as expected. But to tell you the truth, the buffet at the Rio was better. We went there for
Christmas and the Rio's buffet was much bigger and had a wider variety of foods. But the buffet at the Wynn was very, very good.

Again I tried to eat small little bits of everything so I wouldn't want to throw up. Again I failed. Just look at all the desserts I sampled. And I literally mean sampled. I couldn't eat anything after the cheesecake. I had some coffee and we rolled our fat bellies out of the lap of luxury and back to reality.
