The East Coast Diaries, Part VI

It happens this way …

We continued July 3 with a visit to the magnificent National Constitution Center. Outside, re-enacters roamed the mall with their tents, costumes, and stories told in character. It was another brutally hot day, but they wore those colonial costumes with grace!


The only room that allowed photos was the Hall of Signers. We kept expecting these bronze statues to talk to us as we barged in on their conversations.


Almost at the end of a perfect day: a concert on the Independence Hall Mall with the Philadelphia Pops and Susan Egan. Great crowd, great sound system, perfect evening.


The real end of the day: a stroll down to Penn’s Landing. A ferris wheel and an outdoor roller skating rink. Hanging poles of lights with hammocks strung between trees. The Ben Franklin Bridge,


It almost feels as if July 4 will be anti-climatic. NOT!
