Anyway, gorgeous weather (aside from the storm the first morning), nice folks (aside from the girls we sic'ed the gulls on), awesome things to see......altogether a great trip. I will be writing more about it, but here is a trio of pix for you.......
Amanda paid very close attention when we went to see "The Dark Knight. " When Batman (Christian Bale--really, it WAS him, not a stunt guy) was standing on top of the Sears Tower, he was standing above this corner of the observation level. So, we wanted to get a picture of what
approximated his view of Chicago. That, and the fact that "OMG!!! CHRISTIAN BALE WAS IN HERE!!!!"
We had never been to the Indiana Dunes.
If you are from Indiana, or know much
about Indiana, you will know it is one of
the most boring places you can be. That
being said, we were more than pleasantly
surprised by the Dunes National Lakeshore
on the southern shore of Lake Michigan.
The water was cool, but fairly clean, the
beach was warm and clean, and it sure
didn't seem like Indiana.
One of my fave pix......taken from Navy Pier following a fantabulous fireworks display.
