Our Trip To Dover Downs

This time last week Shirley and I had arrived in Dover, Delaware and were busy trying our hand at the slot machines. Penny bets... You might call us conservative. hehe.

It was early morning when John and Shirley picked me up... the sun was just rising as I waited outside The Commons for them to come.

There were over 40 of us on the bus as it headed north...

It was still a bit foggy as we approached the Chesapeake Bay-Bridge Tunnel. There were boats out in the bay.
Then, nothing but flat farm land and lots of corn fields. The Eastern Shore used to be the main supplier of vegetables for the U. S. until the importing from other countries began. I didn't take a picture of the corn fields. They all look pretty much the same.
I was amazed at how pretty the hotel was... and the staff was so helpful and friendly.
and how big the casino was!! Every bit of that building is casino, all the way back to that street you see in the background. You know it, too, when you start walking through each room looking for your partner-in-crime or your favorite slot.
NasCar racing is done on the track there.
Shirley and I had a wonderful dinner at Doc MaGrogans.
We had a great time and came away without losing any money. Didn't win much but that's okay. Mother/Daughter time was what was special.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day together.

  2. Great photos! What a fun trip. A chance to change scenery, and do something fun and different! Glad you two went together!

  3. I'm so happy that both of you had some special time together!!! You both look wonderful!!! Where is the next trip?

  4. We've driven through Dover, but have never been to the Casino - or the race track. Looks like a fun time! I love driving on the Eastern Shore....

  5. Sounds like lots o' fun!!
    We used to go to the casino in Green Valley AZ.

    I do like Vegas tho....
