Road to Beth Sholom
Our little morning procession catches the eyes of the neighbors as we
leave the Barnes, exiting Philadelphia proper.
It's hard to miss Arthur and Ruth's Red 3 series or Cathy's Violet Red
It is the only city traffic we will see today.
Ira and Diane from New York wave on Lincoln Drive
We pick up Lincoln Drive through Fairmount
Park, the world's largest municipal park.
A nice piece of twisties when there is no one around...
I am giving up for now researching the origin of these stone arches
and gates in Fairmount
Park. At nearly 9000 acres, Fairmount
Park has among it's treasures a Japanese Tea House and the largest
chain of authentic
Colonial Homes in America - including the home of Benedict Arnold.
OK so we're Z3 ghoulZ.
All we had time for was a drive through the park to our next destination,
using Holy Sepulcher cemetery, the final resting place of Philadelphia's
prominent Catholics -from Grace Kelly's dad, John, a mayoral candidate,
to colorful Mayor/Police Chief“Big Bambino” Frank L. Rizzo-
as our quiet shortcut.
A cemetery means no cross streets and no stop lights. ;)
