Greetings From Atlantic City

 Tom and I left for our mid-winter vacation to Atlantic City on Saturday.  We drove as far as King Of Prussia and spent the night.  Next morning we only had a one and a half hour drive to Atlantic City.
Our good friends John & Teddi flew in from Florida to join us.  This is the first year in 7 years that they have not driven with us since they are now 'Snow Birds'.
Sunday the weather here was awesome for February.  We sat on the boardwalk and talked for hours without a coat on.  The sun was warm, no wind blowing.  Yesterday we walked the boardwalk but did need jackets as the temp was starting to drop.  We saw Marc Antonelli sing at the Tropicana.   He is a 23 year old tenor with a beautiful voice.  Neither Tom or I are opera lovers but we did enjoy his singing of a song from the Phantom Of The Opera.

We had planned on walking down to the Hilton this afternoon but it is cold and very windy and a gust of wind almost blew Tom away, LOL so we decided to stay in at the Tropicana all day and after dinner we're all going to the IMAX to see 'Tron'.

We have 2 more full days.


  1. How lucky are you!!! I would kill to go home and be able to go to the shore. I am originally from Vineland. It is about 45 minutes from AC. And we always would head down to the shore. My parents still rent a house out in Brigatine. Have fun though!


  2. Enjoy your mid winter romp on the beach! I haven't been to AC for years! Win big!
