Tall Ships in Chicago
The "Tall Ships" were in Chicago at Navy Pier. So Jeff and I boarded the train at 8:25 a.m. and then walked to Navy Pier. It is quite a hike. However many things to see along the way. And lots of people to watch all the way up Michigan Avenue. I knew Jeff wanted to ride the Ferris wheel so I thought it would be fine. However my sweet husband was kind enough to snap "all" the pictures for my blog. That was because I was hyperventilating with my eyes closed shut....I did take a peek here and there.You could really see the line of "ships" from the top. After Navy Pier we walked to the "Water Tower Mall" just to cool off from the 92 temperature. Had a great lunch and dinner. We even had time to shop at "Posh" on State Street. It is an amazing store.There are so many places to choose. Rode the train back in the late afternoon with are throbbing legs. Guess we are getting old! Have a great week.
