My trip, so far

I have been all over the place for my trip. I have been to the Liberty Bell, the Constitution Center, and Reading Terminal Market. I had a Philly cheese steak sandwich and walked a bunch of steps. I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Rodin Museum.

I will be posting them all out of order, because the new software for the blog only allows me to post one photo at a time and it’s a pain in the butt when I have taken so many photos. The old editor works, but crashes frequently, so, I’ll post what I can, when I can.

I am having a great time, even if you’re not really hearing much from me yet.

We Will Rock You

For months, I had planned to go see We Will Rock You with a friend. She pretty much suspected what I was surprising her with, when I asked her to hold the date for me.

I had looked at prices when it first was advertised, and the prices were outrageous. Thankfully, I looked again, closer to the date of the show, and prices had dropped.

I took myself to lunch while waiting for my friend to get off work.



I did errands while waiting. I got gas, went to the pharmacy and I went to the ATM. She got off work early, so we were all set and on our way!

We went to dinner before the show, and I got a Fangtastic margarita. Very sweet, but delicious.
We didn’t get a playbill, so I had to take the photo from the online advertisements.

I waited until the end to see if I needed merchandise from the show. No. I didn’t like the show enough to wear anything advertising it.

The show was like one of the musical reviews that they put on at the amusement parks. I am so glad that I didn’t spend a lot of money on the tickets. It was an enjoyable night, but about a third of the people left at intermission.

My friend was texting me the baseball playoff scores for me to look at during intermission and after the show. Dodgers lost, so this Bay Area girl was very happy about that.

My friend and I played sing along music on the way home. That part of the evening was fun, at least.

Anastasia

We went to see Anastasia on the stage. I took the train, as usual. On the way, I met a woman with an Irish setter. I was chit chatting with her and a tiny dog came down the street, but wouldn’t pass us because she was afraid of the Irish setter, who was perfectly behaved, but big. The small dog’s owner picked up her dog and walked past us, apologizing that her dog was a little nervous about the big dog.  Right after they passed, an Irish Wolfhound walked out of the vet’s office.  Holy Moly!  I’d never seen one up close, and I didn’t realize how large they were.  My train arrived and I went on my way to meet my friends.

We decided to have lunch first. We chose a restaurant on Mint Street, which is where the old mint was located.

The restaurant was wonderful!  Quiet.  Next door to a branch of the credit union where I had my first job.

We went to see the Robin Williams mural. I was a little disappointed to see that there was so much graffiti on it.

The show was good.  The first half was a little slow, and I didn’t feel that it needed to be a musical.  I had read too much about the true story of Anastasia so the fiction part of this was a tad hard on my brain.  The story was good, though.

 

Flo Rida TLC and Nelly

My friend wanted to go to a concert, and I agreed to go with her.  I had a good time, and I took clips of some of the songs.  I spent almost 4 hours on my feet, dancing.  I met my fitbit step goal, and then surpassed it by the time I got back to my car.  I was exhausted the next day, since I am not used to being out so late.

Beach blanket Babylon

We got tickets months ago for Beach Blanket Babylon, since it will be closing at the end of the year.

We had to get to the box office early to pick up the tickets.  After getting the tickets, we went to lunch. We went for gelato after lunch.

I took photos of the theater while we waited for the doors to open.

We found a bakery and got some cookies on the way home.

We decided to go to dinner to round out the day.  We went for Chinese food.

I was so exhausted from such a long day, and from all the eating, I fell asleep by 7:30pm and pretty much slept until morning.  What a wild life I lead!
