Atlantic City We played tourist today ... decided to visit Atlantic City about 45 minutes away. I've never seen 'The Boardwalk' except in movies. I really liked it. The boardwalk goes on for miles - somewhere between 4 and 5. I was particularly impressed with the wood and it's obvious durability. We found out that it was made from Bethabara and/or Cumaru wood which come from South America. Beautiful and durable ... but, we want to preserve the rainforest right? Lots of casinos here - they look pretty much the same as casinos in Vegas, Reno or Tahoe. We didn't pay much attentionto them. But, there's also a beach and dunes and the boardwalk. Really a cool place. Here's a photo for my friend Liz who loves to protect dunes: And, here's one for my friend Lynne who loves Florida and Flamingos All that walking works up an appetite. This was the BEST pizza I have ever had!
