Jean and the kids get comfortable with the dog.

We continued south after the Hoover Dam and drove to Phoenix where we spent the night with Shannon, Melanie, Aiden and Avery, my former neighbors in California.

On Tuesday, we headed south to the Hoover Dam. From the canyon walls, you can see how low the water level is (60 feet minimum by my guess). It is really difficult to get a true sense of the scale in these photos everything is so large. The top picture is the new suspension bridge being built over the gorge. The people in the picture are almost imperceptibly small.

Jean and I are just back from a week in Vegas and points westward. On our final night, we had dinner with business coleagues from Montreal on the patio at mon ami Gabi across the street from the Bellagio and its wonderful fountains. Overhead, the Eiffel Tower....sort of.

Just for Rob, I'll end with this one. The bar was packed with a large group from somewhere who were so loud you could hear them across the street so I can't tell you whether their margaritas are any good but I must say that every one I did have in Vegas was a good one.

On the weekend, I built a fire in the chimenea, sat in the warm sun and watched the snow melt.
