Asbury Park, NJ & the American Museum of Natural History in NYC

Sunday, we were going to spend some time in Philadelphia, but it was so rainy that we decided to just head to Atlantic City instead. The next day, while still in New Jersey, we decided to check out Asbury Park. The beach area has been abandoned, but a lot of construction is going on. It seems they're trying to get it back up and running.

It started raining again soon after our visit and after we stopped for breakfast. Options seemed limited, so we decided to head to New York City and try to find something to do. Of course, going to a museum is the perfect thing for a rainy day. We checked out the American Museum of Natural History. Unfortunately we got there with only two hours to closing, and a lot of things had been closed for the day. I thought two hours would be plenty of time for the museum, but soon realized it was a day trip. They had a lot to see! Here are just a few exhibits..

I saw a cute squirrel eating while leaving, so took a picture of that..Then the last picture is of really old camera's at the apartment we stayed at on our last night of our road trip. Despite the rain, and hardly getting any sleep, it was a nice trip.
