Atlantic

Instagram photo inspired by all the Boardwalk Empire we've been watching
We went back to Atlantic City one last time before we move. There are a bunch of things we "have" to do in the area- I made a list at the three month countdown mark of about 30 things- and going back to AC wasn't one of them. But, we still had a comp room left and decided to make the best of it. We stayed in the Claridge, which has been recently redecorated but I couldn't help but be a little disappointed that it didn't have an amazing view. Then I felt guilty for feeling disappointed and confessed it to Francis. He totally agreed. We looked out the window and the sun was just setting and it was beautiful, something we wouldn't have seen if we'd've had an ocean view...

Okay, actually, we ordered a pizza and Francis had to go to the lobby to pick it up just as the sun was setting. I tried to video tape it for him but somethings you just have to see in real time. We ate delivery pizza, watched TV, took a walk down the boardwalk.  I tried to play a slot machine with an expired cashout receipt. Turns out they expire after one year, what a rub! It's like the casino is out to steal your money!!!

The highlight of the trip for me was the car ride home. We didn't take the AC Expressway- we took a scenic route and stopped at some cute shops and a diner.  We spent $3 on craft supplies at a thrift store- look forward to a bunch of stick pin creations.
We listened to some great tunes.

We ended up having a great time and not "losing" any money, since I'm considering the pins an investment.
