Pics from our trip

Ugh, another Monday! My wife and I had a great time in Atlantic City and Cape May this weekend. We forgot our camera, but I do have a camera on my phone, and was able to take some pics.

No, we didn’t hit it big in Atlantic City, although my wife did win $180 on the nickel machines (of course, I gave it all back). We did have a nice free dinner at Pickles in Bally’s, and our room was free, so all in all it was fun.

Cape May was decidedly more interesting. We stayed at the Cape May Inn, which, if you are not familiar, looks strangely similar to the house in The Munsters. Shockingly enough, the place is also apparently one of the most haunted houses in Cape May … especially, the fourth floor, which coincidentally was the floor we were staying on. No, we didn’t experience any “ghost action,” but it was still pretty funny. The Inn has a very good location though – right near some really nice shops, restaurants, bars, and the beach. Plus, for some reason, the Inn gave us a $50 credit for the restaurant and bar. Couple that with the highly inexpensive food and drink, and we felt like royalty.

Anyway, here are some pics of Cape May (and Mr. Stinky McSmelly, from the Penn State game):

This is the Cape May Inn – it was opened in 1894 … and it seems as if they tried to keep things the way they were then.

This is the little shopping “district” in Cape May. Since it’s November and the remnants of a hurricane were battering the area, not many people were out.

This is the light house in Cape May … we didn’t tour it, so I can’t really tell ya much about it.

This was the view from our room.

This is Stinky McSmelly … avoid him at all costs!

that sounds like an awesome weekend. much better than just sitting inside like we did for 3 three days.

Lisa said...

I can practically smell the McStench coming through my screeen. ...Lisa

Jeff said...

Great pictures ... except they're clearly fake. No way they're from NJ. No trash, no dumps, no medical waste, no Bon Jovi or Springsteen wannabes, no Toxic Avenger.

Glad you had a good time. Great to see you again last night.

Good times for all. You two clowns inspired me and Melanie to take Thursday and Friday off for ourselves. What we plan on doing with those two days is up in the air (as I type someone pulled a UHAUL over to swipe some of my garbage), I'm shooting for AC.

Christina - You wouldn't have loved sittin' next to that skunk!

Elp - I think we may go back around Christmas.

Rev - Small world!

Superstar - Ewwww!

Ink - Right up your alley!

Minijonb - Just a tad better, I would think.

Lisa - it was definitely potent enough!

Jeff - Definitely airbrushed! We'll have to go out for dinner again soon.

Reverse - Do both AC and Cape May!

Los, that inn/ ginormous castle thing looks awesome! Was it the same style inside. And I dig places that are
"haunted"--I am always fascinated by the whole idea of ghosts.

I'm glad you guys had a good time and didn't have to deal with any Stinky McSmelly's in Cape May!! :)
