Philly Naval Yard...day one. Hubby J is working here...and it is open to the public so I went around taking pics while driving...while walking...and even got yelled at by some lady because she was angry that she couldn't have a camera phone (classified materials in the building) so she didn't think I should be taking pictures of the historical "government" buildings:) Everyone else was very nice though and said to go for it...if I wasn't to take pics...then someone would ask me to stop:) No arrest have been made yet:)LOL

the last picture is when my camera died. I was in the process of trying to focus in on two tiny fawns that were hiding in the copse of trees and vines. The one was watching me and I was watching her....then she would go back to feeding and I would move and sit...then she would stare at me for a bit...then feed again. The other fawn was oblivious for the first 10 minutes...Then when the first one went across the path...the other finally started to realize something was up...and she started prancing around like a Clydesdale and staring at me...coming a lil closer...until something else spooked them and they took off. It was such an amazing experience. They were within 5 ft of me for about 10 minutes and then it took another 5 for them to get spooked. I will never forget that experience...but I sure wish I could have gotten a good picture. Gonna try again tomorrow:)

Deb, I really enjoyed this travelogue. My dad was stationed at the Philly Naval Yard. They've done a nice job at putting it to other uses now. I really need to get down there and take a look at it.

I'll post the information about John Bartram here so that folks can understand his significance and the place that this garden has in our nations's botanical history.

the Liberty Bell. Much smaller than I pictured in my mind. Kept thinking it was this humongous 6ft tall bell with a huge crack in it. But its not...maybe including the top holding thing it is the size of JR...LOL. I was almost a lil disapointed! But it is a very pretty bell:)

Ft. Mifflin on Mud Island is located right behind the airport...you have to go under the runway to get to it. So cool. It was a pleasant place to visit...not a lot of visitors while I was there, but JR prob would have been bored. I enjoyed my two hours there walking around and exploring. But I think it might be haunted. I tried to walk into the newly discovered casements and felt like someone squeezed all the air out of my lungs...definetly not a pleasant feeling when you are alone. I had gotten the heebies in two other areas...but that one was the worst. I thought it was just the idea of going in without Jamie that had made me stop before going too far...but after that...not so sure:) So that was my Haunted experience...and they do a ghost tour for the scouts...but I didn't find that out until afterward. That didn't set my mind at ease!

This is the newly discovered Casement #11 where I got scared:) It is underground...has names written on the wall of prisoners of war...this is the one that scared me the most.

Well, my other daughter Jen and DH will be down there tomorrow for the 1/2 Marathon. It has a Rock and Roll theme and they are having bands set up every mile or so playing music so any of you who are close enough might want to head down town for some fun. Traffic I'm sure will be a big mess. Hilarious!
Hey Deb we could make that a goal for next year both of us walk the Phily 1/2? Thumbs up

LOL...yeah we will see...I am wrecked after yesterday. Jamie and I walked 9 and a half total miles...along with the miles on the trolley and the tram and the bus...I am hurting still from last weekend...shins...and that didn't help. But I think I can work my way up to 13 miles and do the Philly one. But we will def be staying the weekend. It is crazy here. Didn't know that it was bc of the marathon until we saw the hotel last night...even here it is nutty!

Our other one won't get a connection up in the room and this one does:( Sorry everyone. I will update on Friday if I can. And I will have more pics (and lots with JR ) then:)
