June 17, 2018, Philadelphia-
We began the day with what was billed as “A Farewell Brunch”-and it was enough to last me, at least, until late afternoon.
Here are a couple of scenes from the morning.
Son is explaining to his second cousin about his work on a ship in the Navy, whilst YH and the little guy’s parents look on.
My younger brother, Mom and the lovely bride are enjoying the morning.
Once we had indeed made our farewells to the family, Aram, YH and I headed over to the Korean War Memorial, just inside Penn’s Landing.
We headed back towards the Independence Historic District. A few late model buildings caught our attention. The Ritz-Carlton is mostly high rise, but uses this domed structure for its lobby, convention center and main dining room.
Here, you get a view of Philadelphia City Hall.
We took in the Alexander Hamilton exhibit at The Constitution Center.
Then came a visit to the Liberty Bell.
I managed a selfie with the former Pennsylvania State House bell, now a national symbol.
Leaving the happy couple to enjoy the Philadelphia evening, I headed south, to Baltimore.
