Last month my daughter and I traveled to Chicago for my cousin’s wedding. We had two full days — one gorgeous, warm and sunny and one overcast and bone chilling – so is Chicago, or so I’m told. The first day we hit the zoo which was a great time and then made our way in the late afternoon to the beach.
Now this will not come as a surprise to many people, but it freaked me out — Chicago has a beach! Complete with lifeguard stands and palm trees. Call me a “beachist” but growing up in Hawaii I always thought beaches were only connected to oceans. Well it turns out lakes have them too. So there we were on a beautiful Friday afternoon in the windy city building sand castles on the edge of lake Michigan.
Live and learn.
Pau for now…
