Baby don’tcha wanna go …

. . . back to that same old place. Sweet Home Chicago.

It’s been perfect weather since I arrived in my suburban Chicago home. I took the Chicago River (boat) tour and the following are a few of the photos that resulted. Of the twelve days I’ve been visiting thus far, the day I scheduled for this tour is the only one that turned out gray and misty. The lighting wasn’t the best for photos, but all in all, a very enjoyable day.

Check out the building with the golden tip to the left.

These two were my favorite.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my friend from (just about) birth who shared with me in this lovely day. Nancy grew up next door to me. I could see her bedroom window from mine. The picture of the street where we grew up is here. She also plays a big part in my memoir anthology, because she was the only sister I had growing up. I’m so grateful God placed her right next door to me.

Here we are in the reflection of the bean (from the above photo). We aren’t really that wide.Β  πŸ˜‰

Thank you for joining in the day with us.

  1. Lake Michigan … it’s my favorite lake – my heart belongs to the ocean but looking at Lake Michigan is like looking at the ocean and I never seen a lake that green. Brilliant choice for the challenge. The art deco bean is called The Cloud. Brilliant object and fun too. Love your post.

  2. The building with the gold tip is the Carbide and Carbon Building, a historic landmark. This is a great shot of it and the Jewelers Building, as seen from the river–a wonderful perspective.

    1. Hi Celia, Thanks for the info. The tour guide on the boat was difficult to hear. I missed some of the info he shared. I appreciate you checking out my blog and sharing it with us. If you’d like to tell us anything more about the other buildings, please let us know.
