After The Wedding and Revel Ramblings


Well, the wedding was over and the honeymoon for the happy couple wasn't to start until Thursday...  so Monday the bride and groom took us to Atlantic City for dinner and a grand tour of the Casino, Revel, newly opened in June.


See the lights hanging from above?  They automatically light up as you walk under them.  I was mesmerized!  


Each 'room' brought forth a new theme and a more enchanting feel than the room before.  


I couldn't stop saying "WOW!"


Everything...  brand spanking new!


Some of the best suites in this Casino/Hotel go for around a thousand bucks a night.  No, we did not stay here.


But we did stop to rest.


And read a book or two...


And dance...


The view was spectacular!  We watched people walking the boardwalk...


I saw these little carts that people were riding in and each one had a man pushing the cart.  I'm like...  "What....???"


Well, that's one way to get a nice tip or two I suppose...


There we are!  Pretty skinny, right? LOL


I loved this tour!  Everything brand spanking new!  


And different!


See the golf ball on the top of that building above?  Well, that golf ball changes and becomes different things.  Don't ask!


Saying goodbye to Atlantic City, we returned to our humble and temporary abode at the Colonial Inn just 20 minutes away.  


Dusk was upon us, and the shops were closed.  So we took a quiet walk around the village, savoring the moment.  


Our place was to the left, among the village shops.  
The next day we headed for home and a few days after that the bride and groom were on their way to St. Lucia.

Hi Bobbi,
What a pretty place to visit but way to rich for us too!!
It is such a sad sad time for us.
On top of it all our septic tank needs fixing and we can not afford to do anything about it so Tom is out there digging every night to do it himself!!! He is a good guy!!!
Thank you for your visits and your kind words. One day Tom will come home with a kitty or two!!
