“Bond didn't defend the practice. He simply maintained that the more effort and ingenuity you put into gambling, the more you took out.” ~ Ian Fleming,

Bruce and I just returned from a few day stay at The Golden Nugget in Atlantic City.  I am not a gambler, and don't really know much about casinos - but I do know this - Bruce loves them, and he shares when he wins. He and his golf buddies have gone on several golf/gambling trips over the years - he always comes back happy, win or lose.  He is also a very sensible guy.

He has recently been comped a couple of free nights at the casino, and so we went down for a relaxing stay. It really was relaxing.  We danced; slept late; ate wonderful meals; read by the pool (under the shade); and in general left the day-to-day responsibilities at home.  It was lovely - and I thank him for taking me as opposed to a golfing gambler!  It was a nice reconnection after having been back from Florida for several months.

Some photos below, shots of the gambling sites are discouraged.

    1. Aren't the fixtures marvelous! While the colors are not my favorite for decorating, they certainly work for a casino!

  2. Chihuly glass? I think so....and what a sharp hotel room. The band and the dancing really look like a great time. Glad you both enjoyed such a relaxing get-away!

    1. I thought Chuly as well, but saw nothing saying it was. Who knows, but it sure looks it!

    1. Thanks Carolyn! I was reminded of your recent post on your trip to Philadelphia. On our way to Atlantic City, we narrowly missed the torrential downpour that caused so much flooding - we were very fortunate!

    1. While we love our home, sometimes the only way to truly relax is to be someplace where the laundry, the yard, dinner, don't await!
