I had a wonderful, special weekend with an old friend (friends since we were eight!). We met in Galloway, New Jersey - right outside of Atlantic City - at a very nice (and old!) hotel named the Seaview Resort. (Remember "The Shining"? Yep - that pretty much describes the experience... the beds were comfy and the staff was very nice though!)
We got in late Friday, had dinner at a local Italian place, then on Saturday headed into Atlantic City.
(Doesn't it look cold? It was.)
I had not been there since I was a kid... so it was neat to see now. It was a very, very windy day. We (quickly) walked along the boardwalk, trying to see all we could while we could still tolerate all of the sand blowing around - directly into our faces. We played some slots at the Borgata (I lost $30! Then stepped away... reluctantly.) And did some shopping too.
I definitely wanted to see Caesars... and my friend was very, very patient while we trekked around the city in the cold, biting wind while trying to find the entrance, (everything seemed larger than life and the whole place somehow felt like a labrynth).
Saturday night we wanted to lay low... so we just headed downstairs for a couple of cocktails in the hotel bar.
Sadly, it all went very fast and today we're both back to the grind! Definitely a special weekend, though, and one that I'll remember forever.
