Amtrak back to Pittsburgh - 8/24/2019
Our weekend trip to Philadelphia wrapped up today. Shawn and I check out of the Bellevue Hotel and took another walking
tour of downtown with our luggage in tow. Our first stop was for breakfast at Federal Donut on Sansom Street. I found
this place online and I knew we just had to check it out. It didn’t disappoint. I had a Carrot Cake donut and
A few blocks away near City Hall was Love Park. The focal point of the park is the famous "Love" sculpture, designed by
Robert Indiana, and was introduced in 1976.
Next, we strolled down Benjamin Franklin Parkway to Logan Square. With the parkway lined with flags from around the world,
numerous trees and the large fountain at the center of Logan Square, this place really felt quite European to me.
We were headed in the direction of the train station and took a relaxing break along the banks of the Schuylkill River.
Our 12:42pm departure from Philadelphia was several minutes late and the train was completely full with travelers. There
were several fits and starts as the train continued to fall behind schedule.
As the afternoon turned to evening and the sun set across western Pennsylvania, we finally arrived 38 minutes late in Pittsburgh
Shawn and I had a great weekend hanging out together and visiting The City of Brotherly Love.
