Yesterday Vicki and I went to Doylestown. It's not too far from Newtown and has more things to do. We started off at the James A. Michener Art Museum and Sculpture Garden. Then we did a little sight seeing (picture taking) and Vicki bought a used book. It was really hot and humid so we went to a cafe and had nachos and iced tea. After that, we paid a visit to Craig who owns "Let Them Eat Cupcakes" (more on him at another time).
On the way home we stopped at Tanner Bro's. It's a cool little market that's attached to a dairy farm. The produce and dairy products are wonderful, and the prices are the best that I've seen around here. (I need to go back and get some pictures.)
Today's pictures feature the museum entrance and some of the sculpture garden.
Notice the high stone walls; this museum is actually housed in what used to be a prision.

Please check out his cool blog. It's called "Thom's place 4 well whatever".
This, like most awards has some rules:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
I plan on following these rules but with a twist. I'm going to take my time passing it on, and only to a few people at a time. I guess I've always been a rebel. :-)
I would now like to pass this award to the following.
Asta - Hyperenergy and other obstacles
M_M - Nowy Sacz Daily photo
Jacob - Ocala Daily Photo
Martha- Martha's Project 365
Hilda - My Manila
I enjoy, and am a follower of all of these blogs.
Check them out.

I decided to join the Window Views meme because if you look at the window in the top picture there is plenty to see, not only in the church but also in the reflection.
So can you see all of it?

The steamboat in the background is called the Liberty Belle and it sits on the Delaware river.
I need to make my way back to Burlington New Jersey to find out more about the anchor and the ship, also St. Mary's church which I posted about last month.

I was very impressed by all of the wonderful old buildings and the well kept grounds. I want to return and see much more, including a museum. I'm glad that Princeton is only a half-hour drive from my house.

The buildings became the Girard Corn Exchange in 1951, Girard Bank in 1970, Mellon Bank in 1984, and was painstakingly restored and converted into the Ritz-Carlton in 2000.
Last week, when I posted about our Philadelphia weekend, I promised to show more pictures of the inside and outside of the Philadelphia Ritz-Carlton. So today, I'm showing some pictures of the outside with some description and history, leaving the lobby photos for a future post.
