We visited the Betsy Ross house, Christ Church, Independence Hall, and the Second National Bank portrait gallery. We had lunch at the City Tavern, where the chef/owner Walter Staib was tickled that we'd dressed to come to his restaurant, and gave us complimentary DVDs and Madeira! That is some happy wine.
I wore my new wool dress and spencer, and was quite happy all day in it, except for when my feet got cold waiting for the Independence Hall tour. And for when I was indoors and got too hot!

|I got to ring a bell that's older than the Liberty Bell, 'cause it was my BIRTHDAY!|
|Trying to choose what to get at the Tavern...it ALL looks good!|
|Seriously, I have nothing but good things to say about the City Tavern. It's wonderful!|
