Did you know you can drive out to Boulder Creek and try out your golf swing?

 Here I am at Boulder Creek on a beautiful July morning. I have no idea what I’m doing, but it’s fun anyway!


 Don’t get me wrong, I love the dingdingding of machines and the whooping and laughter of craps tables, but part of why we love Vegas is because we enjoy the other things.

One quiet place on the strip in the gardens at the Flamingo. Waterfalls, fish, birds, and there a delicious pizza place right there too. It’s wonderful to find a quiet place on the st…
