October 25: Hoover Dam

After a lazy morning we took off to see Hoover Dam. We drove over the new bridge and came back to the Hoover Dam visitor's center. The dam is amazingly massive. It was built in the 1930s during the depression. We took a tour of the huge generators and walked in some of the tubes used to divert the river while the dam was built.

We stopped on the way home to buy a new washing machine for Dave's house as the old one had a broken clutch and it wouldn't spin the clothes. We also shopped for food. Dave was planning to cook a steak dinner for us and Emmett, Jennifer and Sunny.

The gang arrived around 7:30 after having moved most of the large items into the new house. We had a yummy dinner together and then they headed back to the house to do more moving.

The rest of us played dominoes and had a pleasant quiet evening before bed.
