11-6-10 Philadelphia PA

Its been awhile since I’ve written anything on this blog, so I’ve decided to do a few entries now and then to keep folks updated on what I’ve been up to.

Earlier this month I headed to Philadelphia for a Dave Matthews Band concert.

Arriving in Philly hours before the show, there was some time to be killed, so we stopped by Citizen’s Bank Park:
Drove around some seedy Philadelphia streets,
And stopped at a park.  It was starting to get a bit cold, but we enjoyed a real Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, and walked around a park for a bit.
The Dave Matthews Band show was great.  It was Amy’s first ever DMB show and we were in about the 6th row.   I snapped this picture with my IPhone:
After the concert, I took Amy to Cape May NJ.  She had no idea we were going there, but she had mentioned that it was one of her all time favorite places, so I wanted to surprise her.

We checked out the ocean:

And walked around the town:

We ate in a small mom and pop type place:

Amy insisted I use this photo:

Anyhow, despite being just a two day adventure, it was a really fun weekend trip.

    Dude! I went to Coast Guard Boot Camp in Cape May, NJ! Awesome. I also lived there three years as a child when my dad was stationed there. Small world. When I was around 7 years old, my brother and I found a HUGE, beached whale at the beach. We lived four blocks from the beach. Might have been the same one you were on. Wow. Anyway, thanks for the trip down memory lane. See any Coasties walking around?
