As the Summer continues marching onward towards
Fall, it imparts to us the sweet memories of fun, and
laughter, sunshine, and sudden downpours, discovering
new places, and remembering long ago.
This past weekend, I relived the forgotten pleasure
of taking a train ride, which is an experience I had
not had since I was a child.
My travel adventure took me all the way to Chicago
where I enjoyed a taste of the "Windy City".
It was a perfect couple of days to go exploring,
and I thought I would share some of the things
I saw along the way....
While waiting for a commuter train into downtown,
I shopped a nearby farmer's market. Table after
table was overflowing with an abundance of colorful
fruits, and vegetables, and beautiful flowers.
Strolling along the Navy Pier, I felt like a kid again, riding the
Carousel, watching friends take a spin on the Ferris
Wheel, and seeing the ships sailing on the water so blue.
I ended the day by walking the Magnificent Mile, peeking
in the Hershey's Store where I was immediately enveloped
in the heavenly scents of rich chocolate, and riding a boat
through the city canals to view some incredible architecture.
