Seen Around Lincoln and Fairmount Drives

What a beautiful Saturday we had here yesterday!! The Lad is back from a month in Florida so he visited the Casa and we got all caught up so to speak! We headed out later for some shopping and the lad wanted to make a pit stop in center city so it was off! I was in the mood to snap anything interesting. And there is always something to be seen on the Lincoln and Fairmount drives......

Now I love this old school woman, out for a Saturday afternoon, with her chapeau on, doing her errands. You go Miss Thing!

One of my favorite houses on Lincoln drive

Well, they are blunt with what they sell.

The vintage diner on Lincoln drive. The best hamburgers around!

Love this shot of the very high up bridge, with sun beams.

Man mounting a horse

Some of the statuary in Fairmount Park

Fountain in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum

A lovely back view of another bike rider.....

Some scenes around Washington Square West. And no that ISN'T the Mistress's buggy.

Loving the upper balcony of this place...how lovely for a morning Bloody Mary....

Later in the day we headed over to New Hope for there New Hope Celebrates Pride event. Whilst we didn't attend the event itself, it was packed with the gay boys and lesbiaterians all over the place. We went to dine at Lulu Cafe, and the passer-byes were already fore-warned of a change in schedule for Monday!
This was sent to me from a friend, from the other side of town. You know a Pride event can't go off without a hitch without the hate mongers showing up. But love the way the young gaylings handled the whole thing.


After getting in from some beverages, we are now settling in for some dinner and cock-a-tails! Tootles!

  5. I love the Mainly Shoes and More sidewalk display of one lowly form. And I bet that diner has the scent of the Mistress there once with her retro style fashion?

  6. Nice random shots, and the balcony does have the feel of the Mistress, head wrapped in scarf and glasses, having a morning bloody!
