Taking Philly by storm










Well lot's of thing have happened since my last post. The Mystic Art show was good. The weather was perfect and I had good sales.  You really can not ask for more. I was to stay on in Mystic through Thursday, arriving in Mount Gretna Thursday evening, just in time for the early morning art show set up.  Well, Rob was able to get away for a few days and we decided to meet in  Philadelphia for a few days and just do the  tacky tourist thing like nobody's business! I packed up the tent sight early Monday morning and headed to Philly.  With traffic and rain, I was able to pick up Rob at the airport at 3:00 and we headed to the hotel. Rob had reserved a spot in the Convention Center District. It was a great location. So many things that we wanted to see and do were right there in waking distance. We pulled out our bags and parked the van for the duration. You know, after sending 2 weeks in a campsite, the hotel was very welcome. What luxury!
After settleling in we head to the streets. Our friend, Mike Gallager, gave us a list of must eat and drink while in Philly, so time to get started!! We walked over to the Nodding head for a great dinner and brew. Then we headed over to The Monk. Everything was great! Thanks Mike!! We took a lesiurly stroll back through town to our hotel. I am so impressed with all of the public art. It is everywhere. The next day we did all of the tourist things we could fit in. We rode the DUCK through town and up and down the Deleware River, saw the liebery bell and more. We had a blast . For Rob's last bit with me, we drove to Pottsville PA.  Rob was finally able to fufill a dream an tour  the Yuengling brewery. It is a very interesting tour and our guide was a true delight. Now I am off to Mount Gretna Pa for another art show. The weather should be great this weekend, so wish me luck!!

Cheers!
