Cheeseburger!

Sometimes you crave those comfort foods that really hit the spot. For me, it too often is the cheeseburger, as you see in this glorious example:

And check out those onion rings, perfectly battered and fried. Wow. All this, and more, enjoyed with ice-cold Coca-Cola at The Classic Diner, Malvern, PA, USA>

Barbacoa, Ardmore, PA, USA

Barbacoa serves up your favorite smoked and/or roasted meats. Everything from chicken to pulled pork to brisket is on the menu, along with all the sides you love, including mac and cheese, fries, slaw, and the works. As you can see in the next photo, this is a small joint where you can BYOB.

Inside you find several tables for 2 and 4 persons. They also do take out, satisfying that need for a party or social gathering. Let’s take a look at the 1/2 pound brisket platter:

That is more than enough for two people to share, especially if you add some sides. And here is the salmon burger:

What a feed! Seriously, this was a hearty meal at a very fair price served by friendly staff. I’ll be back here often.

Tugboat Video Visit

I had the good fortune of heading back to the Philadelphia waterfront, only a stone’s throw from where I used to work. I visited a handsome tugboat and made this video, showing you some of the particulars. Take a look.

I want to thank the captain and crew for having me aboard. It was fun to check out a newer boat with all the latest equipment. I hope to stop by again soon.

The Right Seat

I had the pleasure of taking a nice flight in a different plane. This time, it was a Piper Archer for a run around the Philadelphia Area. I sat in the right seat for the first half of the flight, which was different because I was able to snap a few photos, such as this one of the skyline from about 1,200′ MSL:

The other benefit was getting this close to Philadelphia proper, an area I usually avoid. From there it was a slow turn to the north and then west out to Chester County Airport (KMQS) for lunch. Here’s a look at Runway 29 on final:

Had a tasty lunch then took off, this time in the left seat for the short run back to headquarters. Was a great flight. I suppose they all are. Always do your checklist!
