- Day 7 Saturday 3rd September 1977
Today’s the day we go to Hoover Dam for the morning.
It was a great trip, a fascinating place, so large ! We paid to go on the tour around the Dam, we travelled down an elevator into the Dam, if you looked through a grid there was so much water ! We spent the morning there & travelled back to the hotel and decided to go & eat with Bruce at the Ice Cream Parlour & stayed until around 3.30pm. Ang & I went for a walk up Sunset Strip to do some more shopping. We walked even further than the previous evening. We went into the MGM Grand Hotel shops, they were lovely. There were many one-arm bandits around but of course we were not allowed even near the machines ! We eventually turned back passing ‘Circus Circus’ which Jay had advised us to see in ‘Osmonds World’, it was packed.
We went inside & saw some small fair stalls, one of the stalls made badges of yourself & pinned to the board advertising them was Donny on a badge ! Oh, it must have been a fan who asked for a photo ?! Ang asked the lady on the stall & she said he was in ! We caught the bus for 70c for a few stops & walked rest of the way. We stopped for another ice cream. Rosie & Janice phoned us just after we arrived back as we had discussed to visit the hotels that evening, but as it was already 830pm Ang & I thought we would stay in, so Rosie & Janice went out & we would see them in the morning. Goodnight everybody !
