I had a good friend take me to lunch on Saturday and he told me to bring my camera, so I did although I wasn't sure what he had planned! After lunch we went to a casino that is on all Indian territory/reservation and although I'm not a gambler, I was impressed with the place from outside! Such beautiful fountains, and waterfalls everywhere!! So, I'm sharing some of that with you today! Hope you enjoy!

 Happiness is like a kiss. You must share it to enjoy it.

This is the ceiling inside the casino!! I was far too busy looking up to try my hand at gambling!!!  It was awesome!

Awesome ceiling and a lovely splash of colour among all that water. What a great place to visit.

Sivinden said...

That's a beautiful park. I'm sure the casino is best seen from the outside - except for the ceiling which is amazing!

Carver said...

Such a fun group of beautiful shots!

I really like the Killer Whale fountain. I might put a fin sticking out of our pond. From Findlay

What an amazing place. Yes that ceiling does look an eye catcher.

Penelope Puddlisms said...

Oh, that ceiling is awesome, as are the water features, Sylvia! Also like the header with your face on the cards. Don’t know if anyone has thought of this yet but personalized playing cards seems like a great idea for a business!

Browse photos and place to enjoy often.

pretty fountains. i really like the fishing sculpture.

Halcyon said...

Casinos can be a little cheesy, but I do like the over-the-top decorations. They're fun to photograph too. :)

That's exactly what I'd do at a Casino and if I got photos half as good as yours it would make it worthwhile. Magnificent place. Question: was it smoky?

Hi Sylvia, loved these shots from your visit to the casino. The fountains and statues are beautiful. I love the orca whales. Wonderful photos! Thanks for hosting, have a lovely week!

Great pictures, excellent sequence of this magnificent place, the last one is my favorite. I like the phrase Bernard Meltzer.

We take my mother to the casino at least once a year, mostly on her b/day. While she gambles, I bring her food, water, or take her to the restroom. Other times, I am taking pictures outside too.

Lois said...

You really got some awesome pictures Sylvia! Thanks for sharing.

Indrani Ghose said...

Wonderful shots and quotes. I want to share Dalai Lama's quote for my post.

Jack said...

A casino in Seattle? It seems there is now one on every street corner. Quite a society we live in.

Dianne said...

that ceiling is amazing!!
the grounds are really pretty too

hugs Sylvia for catching up with me and worrying
hugs from Hope too

Kalantikan said...

Hi Sylvia, that is really an amazing ceiling, i wonder if the gamblers can concentrate when that thing is looming on them. And the garden outside is enticing too!

Al said...

I'm not a gambler but I also enjoy seeing casinos, and your fine photos illustrate why. I can spend a long weekend in Vegas and not gamble a dime, but come out with tons of photos. Have a great week!

lotusleaf said...

The casino ceiling is grand! No wonder you couldn't take your eyes off.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

This is a great set of quotes Sylvia - lovely photos too. That ceiling is amazing!

Linda Reeder said...

I have passed this place quite a few times, but have never stopped. It might be worth checking out, just to look.

Barb said...

Your post goes great with the new Header, Sylvia. The water features are wonderful and the trees were blazing (as was the ceiling).

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

What a friend to take you there. Great waterfalls and sculpture.

Beautiful park! Amazing set of pictures.

Wow! What an amazing place! I thought it was in Las Vegas at first. I love all your quotes from the Dalai Lama.

Joyful said...

Beautiful photos, Sylvia. I was very close to there last summer. Too bad I didn't stop by.

Awesome means big bucks! I am sure you had a good time. Glad you brought
your camera.

Though I didn't set foot in the casino, the hotel and restaurants are fantastic. And that sculpture at the entrance is too. Yup, also did a little bit of shopping. I love the Tulalip resort.

Jo said...

What a beautiful place, inside and out. Thanks for the visit to somewhere I'd never see otherwise. Hope you're having a great day, Sylvia. Jo

I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
