Starting Point: Atlantic Ocean

I decided to "officially" start my trip by swimming in the Atlantic Ocean (can't get much farther East than this)! I headed to Atlantic City at 8am on Tuesday, and arrived just before 10 am to spend the late morning on the beach. And it was a beautiful day for it, even though the water was a bit chilly.
I parked in the Trop and headed to the beach:

I stayed on the beach for about an hour, short enough to avoid getting sunburned for the rest of my trip. Then I decided to go even farther East -- to the edge of the Caesar's Palace Pier:

I stayed in Atlantic City and played a bit of poker at Caeser's, and then blackjack at Trop before getting back in my car at 2:30 to head down to Washington DC. Last time I was in Atlantic City with Steve C, we forgot to get those free Trop playing cards so I made sure to get some this time. I just asked for a couple packs, but the security woman gave me 12 of them. What am I going to do with 12 packs of cards?

Today I traveled through New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. I have a photo collection of the "Welcome to [state]" which I'll post in my albums.

By the way, this is the mileage I started with on my new car before my trip (let's compare it to the end of the trip):Next stop, Washington DC!
