Billy and I officially said good-bye to our apartment in Lehigh Valley this morning. We got the keys to our new apartment over Memorial Day Weekend and will be waiting for our stuff to arrive next week! Prior to moving, Billy and I decided to spend one more day in Philly. We decided it would be a good chance to do some of the things we meant to do over the last two years, but never made it happen.
We started the day with brunch on the Moshulu! The Moshulu is the world’s oldest and largest Tall Ship. It was built in Scotland in 1904 and is now permanently docked in Penn’s Landing. After brunch, we went over to Chinatown and had ice cream at Ice Land. It’s a good thing I was wearing this romper because it was loose enough to accommodate all the food! I actually picked it out while we were in Las Vegas, but it has only recently gotten warm enough to wear it.
To walk off all the food and get some views of the city, we headed over to the pedestrian walkway on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, a suspension bridge that connects Pennsylvania and New Jersey. On the way back to the car, we stopped at Elfreth’s Alley. There are lots of charming streets in Philly, but Elfreth’s is the most famous because it is the oldest residential neighborhood in the country. I’m going to miss our visits to Philly, but could not be more excited to be in the DC area!
