Philly Trip

Molly had jury duty earlier this week in Philadelphia,pa. This is the third time she’s been called but the first time she actually had to go. We were going to get a hotel in center city but in the end we stayed at my mom’s house just outside Philly. That worked out good because I could visit with my family and she could catch the train and not have to sit in traffic.

Tuesday she ended up not having jury duty so she took a vacation day and we took the train to center city so she can see a bit of it and we could pick up a few caches. The Cornwells station has a huge parking lot and i was surprised how many people were waiting for the train. Public transportation is handy and I think SEPTA has a pretty nice system.

We picked up only 5 caches but we walked quite a bit. With Molly’s foot bothering her we stopped and took the subway back to the train station we needed to go home. Molly Misheard the announcement on the subway train and pulled me off.

The one cache that surprised me was the one hidden at jeweler’s row. I never expected to see a cache hidden there and it was a regular sized one yet! That was just too cool. It was interesting to go through there again because that was always a benchmark for how good or bad my vision was when I walked through there with my grand mom after visiting wills eye hospital. At one point I was able to see the stuff in the windows as separate specks of light. Now it’s all just a blur.. Well with the eye I had cornea transplants on I can hardly distinguish the windows as something different from the walls. That’s kinda depressing but they tried their best.

Molly cannot wait to take the train back into Philly to cache.

It was nice to see my family too. I got to see my Brother’s son. He seems to be pretty smart for being only 2. I was happy he remembered me.
