Crocuses, wildflowers and Pussy Willows are blooming. It was like Spring in February. So Furman and I took a ride to Philadelphia and learned about the Wister Institute and the Nikon Small World Exhibition there.
The exhibit was small (pun intended) as in Nikon Small World, so we had plenty of time to wander around and learn a little about the Wistar Institute before heading back outside and searching out lunch. Things had really heated up. Hard to believe that people were walking around sleeveless and in shorts, IN FEBRUARY.
There were people all over. We should not have been surprised that we were asked to wait or enjoy the bar at the White Dog Café when we ended up there on a whim. Too hungry to wait and not interested in the bar, so we walked next door, where we were immediately seated at an available outdoor table. We ordered traditional Philly food at the New Deck Tavern. Yupper, a Cheese Steak with onions and mushrooms for me and Shepherds Pie for Furm. Soooooo goooooooood.
