I can't believe I don't fall today. My head is spinning this way and that when I should be looking for potholes. I'm in the Theater District with the old fashioned flashing marquees on every block. The lake - as in The Lake - is about half a mile from the hotel. I go thru the Millenium Park with its fields, tennis courts, and groomed perfection. The Lake looks like the ocean. It is a bit windy so there are waves and you cannot see to the other side. I run past the aquarium and museums, turn back and the city view --- well.
I love Seattle, but it is such a little gem compared to Chicago. I change direction and visit the Navy Pier before heading back. Everywhere I turn there's a beautiful building. Gigantic pieces of public art dot the open spaces. Have you ever seen the ampitheater in the Park? I want to hear a concert there. It's rush hour as I trot back to the hotel, weaving in and out of the crowds. It's amazing I can run at all, but the sidewalks are as wide as streets thank goodness. What a grand place!
