A glimpse of the "city of brotherly love"

Looking from Camden, New Jersey across the Delaware River toward's Philadelphia's skyline


Approaching the bridge to cross the Delaware River to Philadelphia

It's an impressive structure!

In the upper left of this photo is the statue of William Penn atop Philadelphia's City Hall.


In the not-too-distant past, the statue of William Penn was one of the first things I'd notice when approaching the city. At that time, no buildings in "Philly" were to be higher than the statue. It's now dwarfed by tall buildings.

Probably the coolest carousel ever!


You can read about its history in the last image, but it is currently housed at the aquarium in Camden, New Jersey. The workmanship is outstanding!

"Satellite Park" at the Duke Arts Annex

Duke University has a facility called the Arts Annex tucked away in a lightly traveled area of Durham. The site is free to students, who can use the space to let their "inner artist" create. We stumbled across the location and were intrigued, especially by the art work in the last photos. There you will see what the students did with some decommissioned satellite dishes. I love it!

Milkweed visitors


We planted milkweed seeds in hopes of attracting monarch butterflies, but it seems they're a hit with a wide variety of insects!
