This July 4th weekend the weather has been great. We spent Thursday in the Tropicana playing the penny slots, but Friday morning we got some outdoor time in before heading off to Delaware. We ate breakfast as usual at Flames, just up the boardwalk, but the place is losing its sheen. Understaffed, the deck chairs they use are very uncomfortable, and once again they only had one chef on duty, so we waited a half hour for our food.
The casino check out was mobbed. It took us forty-five minutes between getting in line for the valet, and driving out. We were all sure we’d miss the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, but we made it.
