In my first post here I wrote about our ride on the Tall Ship Windy on Lake Michigan. My second post here is about Navy Pier.
The next three photos I like to call, "Views from a cab". While our driver was zipping through the city streets, I was trying to snap photos out the window. These are the results.
This is Marina Towers. You can read more about the interesting architecture here. I like how you can see the area blurred on the bottom of the photo - you KNOW I am moving!
This is the new Trump Towers. I couldn't get the whole building, but I got a good portion of it!
I saw this and thought, "What a cool name for a nightclub!"
Uh, no. Apparently it's an "environmental solutions" company. Oops. My bad.
We were taking a cab to see the newest sensation in Chicago. The Marilyn Monroe statue. It got mixed reviews. Some people thought it was tasteless and tacky. Me? It thought it was kind of cool.
I just had to get her, ahem, backside, too!
Right near the Monroe statue is a wonderful tribute to Jack Brickhouse, a sports announcer for many of the Chicago sports teams, but most notably the Chicago Cubs.
We had a wonderful time in Chicago, as we always do, but soon we were home again, home again, jiggity jig.
