I said yesterday, the Endless Pool was a wonderful resort perk. I also love the swim up bar. It’s great to sit at the bar and suck down a Pina Colada or stroll through the pool drink in hand. However in my opinion the greatness of this idea to me is ruined by people sitting in their bathing suits munching on Tacos or Burgers. I can’t fathom it. I mean the pool is great but for gosh sakes take a couple of minutes, get out of the sun and have a great lunch and keep your french fries outta my pool!
Major resorts have lots of great perks which is why people go there. Some are wonderful and some are just stupid. Last year we spent time at a truly wonderful resort in Cancun and were served up our first endless pool. It was great being in a pool without sharks,sand and waves and be able to feel like we were right on the beach. This is a perk I truly love. Tomorrow, a perk that is not so great.
This sits atop the Revel Resort in Atlantic City. I know it changes color at night. A security guard told me that on Halloween it is a giant eye and that at Christmas it is a wreath. It looks like a giant golf ball to me. I put the giant gull in there just for fun, it is not a giant gull. If anyone knows what it is, please let me know!
The North End of the Atlantic City Boardwalk was for years not the highest rent district. All that has changed with the Revel Resort. This glass architectural beauty has a giant globe on top that is programmable. It normally looks like a large golf ball but they can change the color. One of the security guards told me on Halloween it was a giant eye like the eye of Sauron. I don’t know if I believe him It also has a world class spa by Bask, fantastic restaurants and is a smoke free environment including outdoor areas except for a small area of the casino.

Recently my wife and I celebrated our 42nd Wedding Anniversary (June 6). Last week my wife retired from her job as a High School French Teacher. I can’t wait to see what the next chapter in our life will be although it will probably begin with the publication of my first novel. We are now editing the novel together. In any case these events require a little celebration so tomorrow we are off to Revel in Atlantic City and have a spa day on Wednesday at the Bask Spa. Why, because we deserve it. I am sure there will be some new pictures when we return.Meanwhile please check out my other images at my commercial gallery.
My blog is approaching its first year anniversary. So I am revisiting some posts that I did in the first month when my audience was a lot smaller than it is today. This is a photograph of Cruz Bay in the Unites States Virgin Island on the isle of St. John. This was a sunset taken on slide film and later scanned to digital circa 1994.

The pool and Spa area at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City New Jersey are world class. This is the outdoor pool in the Winter but it is heated so you can swim out into the cold air and then back inside to steamy warmth. The Spa has coed whirlpools and salt rooms and great steam,sauna and jacuzzis in the club house. The spa treatments we had were first class in everyday.
