Bliss

I do so love Chicago.


I love that it is on Lake Michigan.


I love that someone a long time ago had the foresight to preserve the lakefront for the commoners.

A few of us had made plans for a Chicago day months ago. We had no way of knowing that it would be a perfect day.

We forgot that it was the weekend of the air show. What a bonus!



We have certainly have had our share of bad weather days but it has not dampened our love of the city.


The Groupon that we purchased was for a sail boat ride on Bliss with Leonardo from Italy. See his little flag on his boat.





In celebration of Jim’s birthday, we ate at the Yacht Club—yes at a round table right by the water.


Then we walked to Buckingham Fountain, found seats and waited for the evening show.


It was spectacular! and free and moving and thrilling.


Here is a combination of two short clips if you are interested in going . . . my hubby was singing along part of the time.

The only thing that could have been better is some Garrett’s Popcorn and Bobtail ice cream to finish our day.

We were just too full.

Yes, that full!

Goodness, you do so many interesting things! The day with Kent was special, I'm sure; and then seeing Chicago again with your friends. I used to love to go downtown and out to lakeshore drive and the outdoor theatre when I went to school there.
