HHH – Day 13

Posted: November 3, 2022 in Uncategorized

For something a bit different today and trying to recharge this holiday going to Atlantic City for the day . Basically is the whole day as 90 min train trip each way once I actually get to 30 th Street St. Not a bad thing really as give the joints a chance to relax in between while gazing at the stunning scenery that am sure New Jersey is 😏 The main attraction for me will be the boardwalk which I guess is like a vegetarian ordering a T Bone and wondering why they felt sick. Still some fresh air can’t hurt .

Not prepared to hobble in dark for 10 mins to walk to a near deserted subway station full of undesirables at 630 am in morning so will Uber to 30th street. Assuming I can open the door downstairs . A lot of communication with owners late yesterday with the least helpful condescending advice being “ twist the key and hold it twisted and THEN turn the knob Dave. It’s easy really “ Sure, except there is no knob except the one I’m talking too 😂 Ah, ok then maybe try holding latch down “

Lovely time of day and another stunning station

Of course if I find walking the Boardwalk too much I may just sleep there and not have to worry about getting back in tonight

Train was very quiet but as usual in a carriage that sits 60 people and currently has 6, the last clown that boards sits right behind me! it was only $9 return trip and when arrived a free shuttle drops you of at various spots like casinos so great value. Stopped off at Caesars for no particular reason but just wanted to get to boardwalk first up,on this simply glorious day

It was only just after 930 am so really nothing open which was fine for now but going to be gagging for a frothy one after a few laps up and down. in the meantime I did enter a contest and of course won.

It has been a very warm, though pleasant , time in Philadelphia which is odd for their fall entering winter. Then the penny dropped . Bloody climate change

It was now 11 am so the Biergarten had cased out would be open. Poor planning though had me 10 mins away. Imagine how good that beer will taste when I get there. Imagine no more, it was delicious so I ordered another one. Not that there is any chance I am fading away but do find on these excursions at times don’t really feel much like eating but need to to soak up the alcohol. That pretzel should do the trick eh and it’s always smiling like me 🎃

Was getting a tad warm by now so time to head inside and tonk my honk until the shuttle bus is ready to pick me up . Now something to wash away that salty pretzel taste first. It was a Modelo and very tasty – think they are sponsors of Phillies who lost last night so the World Series in which only Yanks play 😏 is tied 2-2. Looks like I have avoided pandemonium in the streets on Friday as now head back to Houston

Train trip home uneventful and then another subway with the dregs and a 10 min walk home on this beautiful day . No cloud dared to show its face today

So, I didn’t spend anytime today scanning Qantas for early flights home . Complete inactivity yesterday afternoon and a good nights sleep gives the body a chance to recover and I didn’t have to go to Gimpland today. I am sure I will pay for todays walking overnight and tomorrow but certainly glad made the effort. There wasn’t a lot to see or do maybe but it is a memorable location, a bit like Coney Island. Also, seeing something new does inspire one. With 3 days to go , not sure a lot new to see now but am sure will find something quirky. May just do the tourist stuff like Rocky steps tomorrow when weather still good and then relax on weekend and let Philly flow over me

Or just let my fill flow down me 🕺🏻
