Atlantic City

We left Cape May at 0900 bound for Atlantic City, NJ a distance of 45 miles in the Atlantic.  Forecast was good so off we went.  I had never visited Atlantic City so I was surprised by the number of large hotels and casinos, many bearing Trump's name.   This is the view from the Atlantic.
The largest marina was called Trump Marina but when the casino sold it was renamed The Golden Nugget Marina.  Island Hopper is in this picture with bow out and white hull, the small one there.  Very nice marina.
 This vessel is a 98 foot Cheoy Lee that harbors in our marina in Florida.  I have met the owner several times, a 97 year old survivor of Iwo Jima. (a Marine).  He is heading for Montauk, Long Island and then Nantucket.
 Bryce is entertained by the many toys he has acquired.
Of course we walked the boardwalk, though it was a very hot 102 degrees.

After dinner at the Golden Nugget, Debbie tried her luck at the slots.  I returned to the boat after 30 minutes. An hour later she returns with a W-2g in hand, she won $1500!
