Weekend Getaway


I thought I'd post one photo of where I was off to last weekend.  I spent a fabulous weekend in Chicago visiting friends, having fantastic meals, and visiting old favorite spots in the city.  I spent Friday taking photos but, alas the weather did not cooperate.  I ended up coming home with one more souvenir umbrella, something we Arizonans never remember to pack.  Regardless of the weather, it was a wonderful weekend and a great escape.

I've never been there but your photo makes me want to take the river tour.

Julie and I cherish the memories and familiarity with Chicago that we gained while visiting you when you lived in Chicago.

Escapes are good. I've got a BIG one coming. Some excited.

This is a superb photo in that it really conveys the essence of that city.

We lived in Chicago also...in the late 60s. I went to college there and did graduate work there. Lived in Glenview for awhile.

Wondered where you were flying off to! :)

Gosh this is a fab shot Sharon, I didn't realise the river ran through the city like this..you've inspired me to find out a little more about Chicago.

This is such a wonderful shot! I'm not sure where in Chicago this is though. What a great city. Too bad the weather turned bad.

Chicago is an under-rated city. Nice shot.

Thérèse said...

That's exactly how I imagine Chicago! You must have enjoyed even more if you lived there in the past.

I've never been and it isn't that long a drive and is a short flight away so I should go! Great shot, Sharon.

Chicago is a wonderful city. I have been to the same place you were. And, even though I live in the summer in a place where it rains plenty, I am rarely near an umbrella when it rains, so I keep buying new ones, too.

Wonderful mix of old and new architecture.

Lived in Chicago for six years and loved it; your vacation reminds me to go back again! You captured a wonderful scene.
