The City of Brotherly Love is sunny and bright. We visit Benjamin Franklin’s gravesite.
The line to see the Liberty Bell is quite long. We reason that we’ve seen it and walk around reading and watching the displays outside the Liberty Bell area.
A feast for the eyes and mind can be found in the Magic Gardens. The non-profit uses space inside and out to showcase the cool mosaics of Isaiah Zagar, share folk art and tell the history of South Street through creative works of art! If you cross the street to the grocery store and go up to the top floor of the parking garage, you can get some great shots from above.
We drive into New York in time for dinner. Our son takes us to a nice restaurant to celebrate our finally coming to visit him. His girlfriend joins us at Arlington Club Steakhouse. Baby Boy loves their complimentary popovers! Mine is a little too crispy and that makes it a touch bitter. The crab cakes, gnocchi, and other dishes are quite good. After we leave, our son asks if we noticed (singer-songwriter) John Mayer.
