My Wife and I have our Wedding Anniversary five days before Christmas, thanks to me (long story!). This year we went to Las Vegas.
Neither one of us came back with a lot of money, but it was nice to get away for a few days.
I found one of the Free things to do while there. Ethel M’s Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden. Over a million lights on Cactus. Although it sounds different, it was actually very nice, AND they had really good hot chocolate!
Collin Creek mall is well underway of being demolished to make room for the new facility.
It’s interesting, for me anyway, to watch the heavy machinery knock this building down. With the precision of a very large human hand, the operators can separate the tin from the re-bar and concrete and place in individual piles.
I will be back next weekend to see how much more is knocked down. At some point I may post a photo time-laps.
Collin Creek Mall is a few miles from our house and was built in 1981. After 38 years of serving Plano, the decision was made by investors to demolish and build a new state of the art multi-purpose venue.
Of course this make photographers happy with all kinds of opportunities. The mall was open to the public for several days prior to closing for good back in July, so of course, I had to go in a few times. I will share in the next few posts.
There were a few people in the middle of the mall cleaning and preparing for a closing festival.
When was the last time you were in a mall and only saw one person?
And look who else! Zebadiah, Adriana and Adalynn had to see this for themselves too.
