Philadelphia II

It was wonderful waking up in a new decade.

I had an early morning date with the treadmill.

After my run I went upstairs to check out the court tennis.

Court tennis is completely different from lawn tennis. The court is a lot more complicated and you play with different balls and racquets.

You can score a point by hitting a ball into the grille. The grille is the box in the upper right hand is equip with a bell so the point is not up for discussion.

Butter mints are the kings of all mints.

I had to poke around in all the rooms.

When it came to the club logo...I thought the one in the rugs was the most clever.

The red room was the main sitting area off the foyer.

We packed it up and hit the streets.

A friend of JCW's recommended Honey's Sit 'n Eat. We were very pleased with the food and service.

The eggs benidict were served on challah toast...which gave them the right amount of sweet and savoury.

JCW opted for the breakfast was a gaint pancake filled with eggs, cheese, and sausage.

I love these pics. It reminds me of how much I love to play squash...and have a squash court in my house. I've never played court tennis but lots of my friends do, looks fun!

That breakfast looks delish! I have to admit, I think I may have gone for the breakfast bomb myself :)
