At Haverford House we work four days a week at various fantastic organizations and one day a week on our project linking Haverford students and Philly. Obviously, this leaves the weekend for us to have fun and explore Philly. After working hard at Haverford, it feels pretty amazing to have wide open weekends to do whatever fun activities we wish. This weekend, we got to do some pretty awesome activities.
On Saturday, a few of us went kayaking on the Schuykill river at Bartram’s Gardens. It was free, and a lot of fun to be on the water.
Later on Saturday, Callie and I played ultimate frisbee with our team from PADA (the Philadelphia Area Disc Alliance). At the fields, we ran into a few Haverford alums (including a past Haverford House fellow).
To continue enjoying the beautiful Philly summer weather, four of us headed over to Devil’s Pool at Wissahickon Creek.
To round out the fantastic summer weekend, we had a delicious communal dinner of curry, cooked by Robin and Seema. We all have dinner together twice a week.
