The East Coast Diaries, Part II

It happens this way …

Monday, July 1: First full day of Philadelphia sightseeing. We started with the Liberty Bell and met a delightful couple from Limerick, Ireland: Patricia and Donal Sexton. They love coming to America – which was good to hear.


Then we took a bus tour of the city. We love getting the overview of the land and its history.

In the Visitor’s Center, we did some fun things.
