Road Trip Part 2

After leaving Pennsylvania we headed toward New Jersey and our destination of Atlantic City.

The mountains through Pennsylvania sure are beautiful. The pictures do not do them justice.

We arrived at our destination at about 3:00

checked into our hotel and headed for the boardwalk.

and the ocean!

I love the ocean...I don't like to go in farther than my knees, too salty, but I love to look at it and watch the waves!

Atlantic City was fun and a neat place to be. There was actually a feral cat colony living under the boardwalk. One day a lady was there feeding them and giving them fresh water. They had all sorts of beds and houses under there.

On Wednesday we took a drive to Cape May, which is a resort town on the southern tip of New Jersey. Must be the place to go if you live in NJ because it was PACKED with people! We walked around a little bit, but could not get onto the huge beach without paying, so we stayed long enough to eat lunch and then left.

We enjoyed out stay in Atlantic City and on Thursday we headed to New York. I have to say that New York is a beautiful state..the drive was stunning!

Our last destination was Niagra Falls, New York. I had never been on the American side and it was very pretty. Something about that rushing water is so powerful and mesmerizing!

We only stayed one night there and headed for home early on Friday morning. After a one hour delay on the Blue Water Bridge trying to get back into the USA, we got home around 3:00.

It was a great trip but it is good to be home. Now I am just chilling for the last two days of my vacation.

Tomorrow is a photo challenge.

Hubby and I were shocked at how beautiful upstate New York was. It certainly wasn't what we expected.
Sounds like you did some neat things-nice photos!

That looks like such a fun trip. I'd love to see Niagara falls some day.
