Sept 2011 Chicago
Our First Time in Chicago
I wanted to run the trail along Lakeshore Drive,
But this was an unusual day for Lake Michigan

High water and waves made the trail dangerous for runners and bicyclists
This rig was big enough. Not so this guy
We took the Architectural Boat Tour on the Chicago River
And walked back from downtown to our hotel

Our hotel and its Pump Room Restaurant
has been a landmark in the city for a century

This statue attracts attention in the downtown area


The Near North Side of the city
is full of historical residential buildings


We found Chicago to be a wonderful city, but the main reason for our visit was the wedding of Erin, (our godchild), and Max
