Philadelphia Story..........................




We managed a few hours walking in downtown Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon. Weather was perfect. Company wonderful - my brother-in-law and sister-in-law visiting from Arizona.


We decided to take a little break together following a tough morning visiting the guys' mom at the nursing facility. We'd all seen the historic city sights many times, so just wandered the old streets in the lovely Spring sunshine, and enjoyed a coffee and long chat at a sidewalk table.


Fortunately I'd tucked my recently acquired little Nikon in my bag, just in case the opportunity arose to take a few shots...................


.............and you know me, lover of the written word, I was able to get a few signs too!  

Returned home yesterday.......ducking raindrops as we exited the airport. It rained all night, still is this morning. Soggy, but the brilliant green of Spring outside the window is glorious. My thoughts and prayers are with those of you who experienced terrible storms yesterday - I hope you are safe and dry.

  1. I have been around Philadelphia but never in the historic area. It looks like a wonderful place to wander.

    We had rain all day yesterday but the sun is peeking out a little today.

  2. I'm glad you were able to combine a difficult trip with some sightseeing on a beautiful day. We live equidistant to Philly and NYC, but have definitely spent more time in the latter. Thanks to your pretty photos, Philadelphia is sounding like an intriguing destination for walking around now!

  3. I loved the glimpses of Philadelphia, a city I learned to love many years ago when we lived on the Main Line for a several years. The history is everywhere!

  6. I am a park ranger at the historic sites in Philly and I must say, your photos are lovely. These are places I see frequently, so my perspective gets mundane. It is nice to see the area through another person's eye now and then.

  8. We have driven by Philadelphia several times but never stopped in to see the historic city and it's beautiful buildings. I'm glad you had a break from the strain of your visit there. Thanks for sharing. We heard about the terrible storms down there. It seems never ending. Hugs, Pam
