I’ve been getting my relaxation on, first with Matt’s parents and grandpa, and then in Atlantic City!
Despite torrential downpours, wind, and losing power for a minute, I enjoyed getting to hear about Matt’s family history, looking at goofy old pictures, and exploring the quaint town of Island Heights.
As always, we did a small beer tasting – a wonderful imperial stout from Weyerbacher.
Matt’s grandpa is 93 and will only eat at his favorite diner – Perkins, so that’s where we dined:)
Let’s just say I didn’t leave with a clean plate (that’s spinach and mushroom benedict). We did, however, leave with an apple pie that was quite delicious.
Yesterday, I also got to visit with my aunt and uncle who live in the next town over!!! It was so great to catch up with them and an added bonus was this perfectly most carrot cake – hands down one of the best I’ve ever had.
And now I’m at the Harrah’s, relaxing after a perfect night on the town.
We got some fresh air,
and we sipped on whiskey drinks by the fire pit at the glorious Continental,
and munched on great tapas,
and enjoyed the ocean views.
and I could not ask for more.
Day 2 begins now.
