The next couple of days in Atlantic city were great!
On the Friday we shopped and spent a lot of the day lying on the beach. It was so relaxing and sunny - almost like a treat for all the hard work we had been doing over the last 9 weeks.
We spent a large portion of the day wondering around the fantastic outlets and making friends with all the shopkeepers. One thing about america EVERYONE IS SO VERY FRIENDLY AND NICE!!
After all of this ( plus a snooze ) refreshed, brown and happy we headed for the most amazing mexican meal.
Te next day after changing hotels ( we had to shift to a hotel that was further out of town because it prices went up about 100 bucks each in the city) we took the bus which took ages because we could bit read the schedules we went down the road to a smaller beach area called margate. The bus ride was great! We saw some amazing houses and the little seaside towns were so cute and reminded me of home. Except unlike home there was no break between the towns there was a constant line of houses.
We headed to the famous " Lucy beach" which has a HUGE elephant statue! It was so pretty and kind of reminded me of the sheep in goulburn. However there is a beach next door so it beats the sheep by far. As Amanda and I started into the beach we saw many of our girls and councilors from camp Kweebec but we were stopped in our tracks by a tiny girl demanding 10 each for " beach tax." I was very annoyed but ended up paying it :(
We got to see our girls which was worth it in the end and I tasted the best fruit salad and yoghurt I have ever eaten! One of the girls drove us back to Atlantic city and we headed back to our new favorite food place ruby Tuesday's yummmmm and after more shopping and a incredibly long hunt for some deep fried Oreos we drove back again for some sleep.
The net day was dedicated to traveling to NY! more later
