Snapshots of Chicago…

…from Saturday and Sunday.

Warning! The full deal is yet to come. There is so much to see and do in this windy city. I’m resigned to be content with what I actually am able to do.

On Saturday I bought a ticket for the hop on/hop off trolley-double-decker bus tours offered here in Chicago. I saw a lot. I got a feel for the routes. After a full day in the sun I headed up to the 96th floor of the Hancock tower to cool off and see the sights from way up high.

On Sunday I walked several blocks to the Chicago River to see about getting a ticket for the Architectural Tour.

There was lots of room on the 9:00 tour and I took lots of photos on this great boat ride on the Chicago River. More to come. After the river cruise I hopped back on a double-decker bus and took the advice of the tour guide and stopped for a quick lunch snack here.

I had my first ever Chicago dog and it did not disappoint. After my snack I hopped back on the bus and headed to the Art Museum.


Such amazing things to see at the Chicago Art Museum. That’s definitely a post in itself. After I was done at the museum I walked several blocks to the river again and jumped on the double-decker to head back to the hotel. On the way I made reservations for Dear and me at this restaurant for dinner tonight.

Dear is working hard at the convention center and I’m working hard touring about the city. It’s nice to end our days together over dinner…
