Paying My Respects

Thirsty business, paying our respects to the nations forefathers, in Philadelphia. I had the Franklin's Mistress, it was delicious, and Ben Franklin is my favorite forefather! Tim, Steve and I walked through the historical buildings and needed a late lunch after all that! The Royal Boucherie hit the spot. The Oysters were outstanding.

Had a stiff neck from looking up! All the architectural details, on these old buildings, are mind boggling.  

Nathanial Greene crossing the Delaware with George Washington. I am a direct descendant of Nathanial Greene.

The art of the colonists shows the pride of the new states.

The Second Bank of the United States in all it's simplicity.

Independence Hall.

Philadelphia City Hall was visible immediately upon exiting the Regional Rail. William Penn standing tall!

Pretty exceptional!

Commander In Chief of the Continental Forces, George Washington. 

The State House Bell, used to summon the young attorneys, who wrote the Declaration Of Independence. 

Give me liberty or give death. Patrick Henry 1775.

I feel so proud of the young men that, together, created our country. So I had to pay my "respect".

Thank you, Timothy Marshall Griffiths, for being the great tour guide.
