June 8th, 2010
Cruising down the Jersey Coast again and finally we could see something on the distant horizon. Spruce was not sure what it was, but I had a hunch that it was Atlantic City. After hours on the boat we made it to Atlantic City and boy if you have any doubt who is top dog, the buildings will set you straight. Atlantic City is the home of The Don himself. We stayed at Sen. Farley State Marina which is now owned by Donald Trump. Due to the weather turning on us again we stayed at Mr. Trumps for two days. My one dream was to see the boardwalk, the only problem was that we had to walk through the hood in order to get there, ( we decided this was the last walk in the hood for us) . The boardwalk was not what I thought it would be, I had a more romantic view of it with the freak shows and the venders of days gone by. The boardwalk of today has casinos and shops, it did have rickshaws, which were fun. If you go, go on the weekend, because the rides will be open then and take a taxi or car there.
