On This Day in 2008 – Our New Jersey Vacation (Part 1 of 3)

The date was March 20, 2008.  On that day we arrived in Atlantic City, NJ, after an approximate 7-1/2 hour drive from our hometown of Warren, PA.  Please join me, as I provide a look back at our 3-day New Jersey vacation.  Our vacation is broken into three parts: one blog post for each day.

We left home at 12:20 pm and arrived at our hotel (Comfort Inn Boardwalk on S. Kentucky Avenue) at approximately 7:45 pm.  I conducted an internet search today and discovered that the Comfort Inn Boardwalk closed in the Summer of 2008.  It was purchased by Pinnacle Entertainment in order to make way for the building of their new massive hotel where the Sands was located.

Our drive to Atlantic City was uneventful, although we did consider driving through downtown Philadelphia a hair-raising experience. Our GPS didn’t let us down, though.  It directed us through the city and over the Walt Whitman Bridge with ease.  Actually, our GPS provided excellent directions throughout our entire drive to Atlantic City.  I wish my camera had been available, as we crossed over the Walt Whitman Bridge.  A full moon hung above the bridge.  The moon was so large that I felt I could almost touch it.  Bob missed seeing this remarkable view because his full attention was on the road and the cars all around him.  There was one other time during which it would have been nice had my camera been available.  When we arrived in the heart of Atlantic City we were surrounded by a spectacular nighttime scene reminiscent of Times Square in New York City.  I wish my camera had been available to capture that scene.  We considered walking from our hotel to that part of the city to take a picture of the night lights and to check out the casinos; however, we opted to stay in our room after checking in.  We were tired after our long drive to reach our destination.

    What did we do before GPS? I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds the camera unavailable when I wish I had it.
