My favorite Chicago photo from recent trip. Taken with iPhone, only one of the group that I decided to enhance.
I arrived in Chicago late on October 24 and decided to take the train to the Loop. The platform is still relatively sheltered, so you aren’t sure yet how warm or chilly it is.
The next day, on the train to the “Trick-or-Treat Trot” in Lincoln Park at Montrose.
By the way, the tortoise and the hare tied!
The sun peeked out and it began to warm up, so I decided to walk the lakefront for awhile before crossing Lake Shore Drive back into the city.
Here’s some info about the purple martin nesting site.
As you continue southbound, there’s a lovely stone wall and a beautiful golf course.
The wall had texture and color and contrast. I could have stayed there all day. So many different angles to appreciate. Here’s just a couple more.
By the time I got to this intersection, it was convertible weather. I’d already seen three tops down, all with big dogs in the backseat. Everyone was loving the fine day it turned out to be. I’m guilty of taking photos of places where I’d like to remember for a future meal and I’ll have to see about Clarke’s.
I clicked the link to their actual website, but like a lot of things in Chicago, it’s under construction.
I got back to the West Loop by late afternoon and it was getting back to a bit overcast.
Do note that these are only portions of the rolls, they’re huge. Kamehachi is one of my favorite sushi places in the country. If dining-in, the Ontario Street location is quieter. For a more lively atmosphere, the one one Wells is better. (The location on Wells also has an upstairs area that serves late-night.)
Another fabulous day in the Windy City.
