Day 8 - Philadelphia

After spending a week at the beach, relaxing, reading and walking, we were glad to hit Philadelphia and walk around the city!   I love big cities - it was our second time visiting Philly and we enjoyed it even more than the first time!!  We got there a bit late because of traffic (and it was a Saturday!) but we managed to go walk for a couple of hours before crashing!!

Don't know why, but we didn't get the chance to see the Love sign the first time around - finally got to see it up close! There were so many people around taking photos!

I asked Ben for a snapshot - funny that I was wearing my "Make Love Not War" shirt!!

Love all the different types of architecture. The LOVE and your shirt go perfectly together! Love the mural in the first shot, also!

Great T-shirt! I love these. The architecture is amazing. I really love the bricks in the last 2 photos. Very cool.

I have only traveled past Philadelphia and it wasn't pretty. Not pretty at all. These pictures show a much nicer, more aesthetically pleasing look of Phili. Love the LOVE sign coupled with your t-shirt; and all the various architectural shots you got - very nice!

Fantastic! The mural is wonderful and I love your perspective in these shots, especially the 2nd and the hard rock sign. Your photography could do wonders for Arvilla, ND!
