Last night at Amazon, we got about three hours of work in before running out of stuff to do. The managers called all us campers down to the standup area, and while they couldn’t legally tell us to “go home”, they strongly suggested it.
So after confirming that we still got our bonus if we left early and that our campsite was still paid for until Monday, Julie and I left for the last time. Instead of having to go in tonight for our last half of a day, we celebrated by going out to dinner in Legends, the fancy shopping center on the eastern side of Sparks right near the RV park (also the location of the I Max theater).
Also a part of Legends is Scheels, a two-story department store specializing in outdoors and sporting gear. I’m not a big shopper, but we’ve been told this place was worth a visit. The checkouts have these giant aquarium pillars, how fun. There was a diver in this one with a squeegee cleaning the glass. The center of the store has a Ferris wheel, which sadly cost money to ride. It was a fun to window shop, and I did buy something: they had fancy apple flavored licorice, mmm.
