Chicago, Chicago

I love Chicago.  Especially in the fall, when you can cozy up in a colorful sweater jacket and scarf and hit the streets for a day of walking, looking at art, architecture, shopping and eating.  We ventured forth while taking my granddaughter, Violet, to visit colleges (!!!) nearby and while Jerry and Violet explored the U of Chicago campus, I toured the Robie House, a Frank Lloyd Wright – designed home finished in 1910. What a treat!  After that, we visited Millenium Park  to see the Bean (officially entitled Cloud Gate Sculpture.)  The experience was unlike any other. Here we are gazing at our contorted selves in the giant sculpture:When you go under the sculpture and look up, this is what you see.  I can pick Jerry out of the image because he’s taking a picture, but otherwise I’m lost.  What you can see, though, are 3 replications of a sweet 16 party, dressed in emerald green satin finery, posing for photos.  Mind-boggling and a total crowd pleaser.  I love Chicago.

  1. Wonderful photos! That Bean is something else – I must see it some time!
    Meg, I love, love, love the entire outfit you are wearing (no surprise to you I’m sure).. The scarf looks very cool with that outfit and after seeing it on you, I have to take another look at the ones Jerry has.

    Violet is going to college soon ? I think I have a photo of her sewn into a blouse I bought once from Jerry, and she’s a very little girl! Where does the time go? U. of Chicago is a great school.

    I love Chicago also, but haven’t been there in years. Your photos make me want to go back. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
