Parade Rest

In the back basin of the Philadelphia Navy Yard, you’ll find a number of ships in reserve or mothballed status. Fortunately, they’re not needed as intended. Still, sad to see them laid up. Here’s a look at a few on a clear morning.

Eventually they will be sold or scrapped. I’m sure their former crews have many stories to tell.

Lucy, Margate, NJ, USA

Lucy is one of those roadside attractions from another era. A giant elephant that looks out to sea in Margate, New Jersey.

Fun for the whole family, this type of thing is. On the afternoon I was there, it was closed. Still something to see. Enjoy the journey.

Racks of Ribs

Attending the West Chester Food Fair (Pennsylvania) is always lots of fun, not to mention a culinary delight. While ambling down the street, I came up on these racks of ribs on the smoker.

That is quite a pile of smoked goodness there. Roamed about for two hours sampling all kinds of food. Was a great time. Enjoy every meal.

Cyclocross anyone?

Readers of my blog will note recent posts about bicycling. Well, not only have the distance of the rides been extended beyond 70 miles, there have been some cyclocross type of additions to the course. Here’s a photo from the Philadelphia Art Museum steps:

Yes, those are the famous steps from the movie, Rocky. At this point, the bike was shouldered and carried up for the following view:

Next time, there will be no pause to snap photos. These type of cross training activities make for a more interesting and challenging ride. Plus, they’re tons of fun. Enjoy the ride; share the road.
