May 28, 2012  Day 17                                  Total miles to date:  391.94

A new adventure today (Memorial Day) as we traveled in the ocean for the first time going from Cape May to Atlantic City.  We stayed about 4 miles offshore. We experienced three to four ft. swells that rocked and rolled us, but it was not too bad!  The autopilot did the work and we just monitored it. There were very few boats out there!

Revel is the newest and tallest hotel

When we arrived in Atlantic City we took a “jitney” to the Boardwalk and spent over two hours walking around.  We have been here a few years ago so it was nice to revisit.  We did see the magnificent new hotel, the Revel, which just opened this weekend. We met Carl and Ricki (Quest) and Skip and Barb (Moor $tuff) for dinner at a restaurant in the Golden Nugget and had a fun evening. We left a few dollars in the casino afterwards and then called it an early night. We will travel together offshore tomorrow as we make the 60 mile trip to Manasquan, NJ.
