Hello from the Jersey Shore
What a gorgeous day. I think I can honestly say it's the first day that feels like late spring/early summer this year. It's been sunny and between 70 and 80F (21-26C) depending how close to the coast you are. Not humid really either, just really nice. I can tell I am not used to the sun anymore though because I can definitely feel it. We weren't even outside for that long, just walked along the boardwalk in Atlantic City for a bit. Well tomorrow I will be sure to put on some sunscreen just to be on the safe side.
We left Danbury around 8:30 this morning. Stopped at Starbucks and then we were on our way. Headed to Atlantic City where we had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. Atlantic City really is pretty crappy. I mean they have built some new hotels that I am sure are nice but all in all the whole vibe definitely isn't my thing. I had never been there before so I was curious to see what it was like. All in all it is about what I pictured I suppose. It's basically Coney Island with a bunch of trashy Jersey Shore type people and some casinos. I did enjoy walking along the boardwalk and had fun people watching from inside the Hard Rock. Our table overlooked the boardwalk so we had a great view for people watching.
After we were done in Atlantic City we drove to our bed & breakfast to check-in. Really happy with the room. We are the only people staying here since it's still off-season and mid-week so we pretty much have the whole place to ourselves. Very cool. Hanging out in the room for a bit now before heading out to dinner in a little while.
And last but not least of course Happy Mother's Day to my mom and all of my friends who are mothers. :) I am happy that my mom is now back home and doing better than she has been. My parents are leaving for a 2 week trip to the Croatian coast on Tuesday so that will be nice. Will be good for them to be able to relax for a bit, eat good food, walk on the beach and just enjoy a change of scenery.
