Day 9: Philadelphia to E-ville
QOTD: It’s good to be home
Pics: Palomar, outdoor dining in the 40s, Devon, another shrine
FitCtr and waffles, a walk around the hood towards the Liberty Bell, pick up dinner at DiBruno Bros and a local farmers market, then a visit to collectors that a) live in a small condo on Rittenhouse Square and b) DB visited years ago with the Art Jewelry Forum to see Clara’s jewelry collection. This time the focus is on the furniture and ceramics collections, many are exquisite pieces, well displayed.
Lunch at Devon’s, a fish place on Rittenhouse Square. Unfortunately, even though the place is huge, they have placed an extra long table in an aisle, so every other person is sitting in the dark. So-so nicoise salad and a box of cookies to go.
Off to airport, less than half the group is on the bus (others were taking trains, cars, and other modes of transportation that did not require flying directly out of Philly as the tour ended). And, when THB booked the trip originally, United had a non-stop; now it is a layover in O’hare for maybe 40 minutes, and of course we’re leaving from a different concourse and thus are the last to board and our bags won’t fit in the overheads any more so we end up checking anyway.
Back in E-ville around 9:30, now to get back on west coast time.
