Travel Diary: Crossing the Delaware


Crossing the Delaware River over the Delaware Memorial Bridge
Traveling from D.C. to New York on a Summer day in 2017, I took a photograph of the Delaware Memorial Bridge - and wrote this illuminating post.
I'm wishing everyone peace and solace on this Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Traveling by bus seemed an economically wise decision considering I am at the end of my Summer tripping. How's twenty dollars on a bus from D.C. to New York's Port Authority Bus Terminal in Hell's Kitchen sound to you? I prefer Amtrak's Northeast Regional train - but hey, I can't afford to always ride those rails.

I took this photograph (above) as the driver crossed the Delaware River.

The roadway introduced us to the pathways of the New Jersey Turnpike (*counting the cars*). And yes - that's a shout out to Simon & Garfunkel's ballad "America."

I ain't no General George Washington but I'm glad to be headed for home.
