Philly

We spent the day in Philadelphia today which is easier to get in and out of than NYC. Saw a children’s play at the Please Touch Museum and then caught a few laps of the USPRO Wachovia Classic cycling race.

Later in the evening, our little hamlet put on lessons in Square Dancing in the local commons – city hall brought in a “caller” from Pennsylvania to get things started and instruct everyone how to “dozzie-do” and we all had a great ol’ time. Our version of a summertime bon-odori.

We took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather on Sunday to visit the submarine Becuna and battleship Olympia tied up at Penn’s landing and check out the exhibits at the Philadelphia Seaport. Great bargin as admission is free on Sundays from 10am – Noon.

After getting lost on the streets of Philly we made our way to the Philadelphia Zoo and check out the monkeys and shiver with the lions as the sun went down.
