The results....

It was close - a tie actually. I'll give you the correct answers first:

Day one - easy peasy - Hilltop field

Day Two - Wawa is the correct answer - but it's the Wawa at Manoa and Darby - right church, wrong pew.

Day Three - Sacred Heart church

Day Four - the bench outside Brookline Fire Co and the stands at HHS football field/track

Day Five - sitting on the bench outside Applebee's - awaiting a well-deserved sangria after traipsing all over Havertown!!

Thanks for playing.....

Consuelo and Leigh Anne tied with all 6 correct answers. Congratulations!!
