Took a day and went down to Atlantic City for a bit. It’s the off season, so it’s incredibly empty. I thought it was nice and peaceful, outside of the massive strobe lights of the casinos. The beach is very nice. Lots of seagulls and crabs. The boardwalk was a lovely stroll to take in the area as well. If you’re not one for massive crowds and tourists, then I suggest going during the off season. Not as many shops are open, but you can still have a lovely time. Here are a few images I got of the beach and boardwalk.
This might have been the most crowded we saw the boardwalk the entire time we were there.
One of many entryways to the beach.
An old pier into the water.
Looks forbidding in b&w.
Looking along the pylons.
Some kind of drainage pipe.
The birds congregate.
What do they see out in the water?
Looking out to sea from a pier.
Guarding the drainage pipe.
A view under the pier.
Coming in for a landing.
Creepy under the pier.
Along more of the pylons.
A boarded path back to the boardwalk.
A view of our hotel – the Claridge – they had a wonderful groupon running.
This casino/hotel is very wide.
This statue is very creepy looking. And you can pose under it…
Next time: Brooklyn Botanical Gardens in the Spring and beginning to bloom.
