While in Chicago we were only a couple minute walk from the historic Navy Pier or an even shorter trolley ride. We found ourselves down there on three separate occasions and on one occasion we had a lot more time to explore and wander around. On another night I finally went up in the famous Ferris Wheel at dusk which made for a fun ride but lousy photos. Clicking on any of the photos will take you through to itâ€™s page on Flickr and a more detailed explanation.
You can see the rest of my photos from Navy Pier in their photoset on Flickr.
I got back into Saskatoon last night. I had specifically asked that spring be waiting for me when I got back but someone wasn’t listening and it was still winter when I got off the plane and cleared customs.
I have had a lot of e-mails about what I was doing in Chicago and why I am moving to the United States. The truth is that I was down for the National Social Services Conference for the Salvation Army, no job interviews, no job offers, and I am still planning to live in Canada.
Of course standing at Navy Pier on a Sunday morning, drinking a smoothie, watching the tour boats being cleaned, and enjoying the 80 degree weather, I had some serious thoughts about moving but being Chicago, I knew the weather won’t stay that way for long, plus I missed Wendy, Mark, and Oliver.
I’ll try to post some photos and some thoughts from Chicago over the next couple of days. Until then I have 40 or 50 voicemail to respond to.
