then again, some board a private yacht and get their own chartered tour of the city. i'm not naming any names, but someone thought their saturday would be pretty typical. wake up around 7:30, turn on sandra lee and watch through the new latina cooking show, do some dishes that had been hanging out, perhaps grab a starbucks and then stow away to the roof - weather permitting - for some good old fashioned sunning and reading.
ok, i'll name names... it was me, and it was a fantastic way to spend a saturday morning. i'll even admit that i've wanted to take one of those architectural tours around the river, but this was great. we had a chicago native as our captain, and he filled us in on the quirky facts of our tour.
The Merchandise Mart
i tried to get as many pictures as i could, because i knew this might be the first and last time i had the opportunity to take in these sights from this angle. plus, after almost a year - i've never been this close to the sears tower. the weather was perfect, even though it looks foggy and ick - it was neither cold or hot... it was perfect and over cast.
and who knew there were even taxis in the water? not me!
it was certainly a chicago memory i will never forget, and at this moment we are dreaming up plans to make it work! i mean who doesn't need a 1.2 million dollar yacht at their disposal for their saturday pleasure?
