Sept. 1--We spent another full day in Philadelphia checking out the Old City. We took a Duck tour. These ducks were made for the military in WWII as a landing craft. The tour lasted about 70 minutes and drove us around the old city, and then into the Delaware River. We ate lunch at the City Tavern. The original building was torn down some time ago, and a new one was built in the 1980's I think. Drawings were used to make it as authentic as possible, and it is on the original location. The meals are what you would find in a tavern of that era. Janet had turkey pot pie, and I had meatloaf. Both excellent!! The tavern has a local brewery make 4 beers from the original recipes from Geo. Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and John Adams. Jefferson's was good, Geo. was ok, Franklin's would do in a pinch, and Adams was terrible. They sell 6 pack bottles to go for only $15.00. I passed.
There were a few buildings we wanted to see outside of Old City, so we hopped in the Honda to take a look. Philadelphia City Hall. WOW!! I don't have enough adjectives to describe this building. Check out the photos. It's like a city block big. The RV park is an hour out of town, so we left Philly at 4:00ish to try and beat some traffic.
And the adventure continues,
