Last Monday I took a day trip to Atlantic City. I was off from both jobs and I decided to take an impromptu beach trip for my birthday. The weather was a beautiful 79 degrees, full sun. However, the waves were really rough. I enjoyed them, however.
I met some young ladies and hung out with them for a little bit. They poured me some champagne and toasted the 4th of July and my birthday. They invited me to the Tropicana’s pool, but I decided to stay beach side. It was nice chatting and sitting with them for an hour.
I also had joy chatting with the lifeguards. They agreed to a selfie and I had my eyes closed because the one behind me said something funny and I was laughing when I took the photo.
When I went to get changed, I decided to leave my stuff on the beach. I wanted to come back to take some photos. Well, after I got changed, I decided to try my luck on a slot machine. I tried two penny machines, put $2 in and didn’t win. I don’t gamble, $2 was enough and I walked away. I wasn’t impressed.
I went back to the beach and the tide had risen so much that half of my beach blanket and one of my towels was soaking went. I had to move my set-up back. I was a good 3 feet away in the morning and by 4pm the tide had risen that much. Fortunately, the waves didn’t take my stuff back into the water and fortunately my camera was okay.
I took a few photos in the rising water, packed up my stuff and went into the Tropicana to charge my phone before having dinner at Rain Forest Cafe. Charged my phone for the hour, then had a nice gluten-free dinner.
Atlantic City is always a fun time and last Monday I made some wonderful memories.
Last Tuesday I had to take a photo of the beach-wrecked blanket and towels. It looked like I brought home a good portion of Atlantic City.
