Full Vegas Moon - March

The moon has some competition here on the Vegas Strip. Rob and I stayed at New York, New York, heard people shriek as the hotel roller coaster sped past. Our room overlooked the Excalibur, MGM Grand, the New York New York sign and the Luxor pyramid. Very sparkly indeed!

One of my favourite moments today was when we happened by an unscheduled  'maintenance run' of the Bellagio fountains dancing  to "Fly Me to the Moon." Serendipity.

Las Vegas is where we are beginning our holday. We landed late Wednesday and spent Thursday walking the strip. Traveled to Venice, Paris, Ancient Rome and Medieval Times to name just a few.  Must have walked close to eight miles!

We ate an amazing dinner at the Eiffel Tower. We both indulged in souffle - I had a blue cheese souffle with toasted walnuts as an appetizer and Rob had one with Grand Marnier for dessert. My Muscovy duck was perfectly prepared. A very rich meal. We were seated with a perfect view of the Bellagio Fountains, and after dinner walked over to watch the water show choreographed to a few more tunes.

Full Worm Moon – March As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.
