(Outside the Lights of Liberty Museum near Independence Plaza)
And now for something completely different: Saturday, after picking up Sis.in.law from Philly International, we headed down towards the Independence Hall area of town and ended up at a little old pizzeria for lunch (as I mentioned previously). The line to get in to see the Liberty Bell was very long so I took Mom and Sis to view it from the outside, then we stopped in a souvenir shop to pick up a few goodies before heading home.
Shortly thereafter, we ended up in a huge, slow crawling backup on the NJ Turnpike. Never fails - returning from PA we always hit massive traffic within minutes of being back in NJ. There was a Nasty tractor trailer accident on the southbound side - of course it caused bottle necking on the northbound side since everyone had to slow to gawk. Plus there were delays at our exit as well, so as soon as we were able, we got off the turnpike (where we encountered Long lines to get through the tolls thanks to the mass exodus off the turnpike). Thanks goodness for GPS. We took an extended scenic route home (and of course ran into more backups because of mall traffic!) and ended up home about 7:30pm. Whew! And there ya have my Saturday update, lol!
