Always fun to see what improvement have been made to the lakefront. Like this new pedestrian bridge that seemed to “pop-up” over the winter. It crosses over Lake Shore Drive giving better lakefront access for those on the South Side. A cool blue bridge & beautiful blue skies!

The beautiful South Shore Cultural Center on the south side of Chicago… kinda where the bike trail ends… so it makes a nice place to refuel & to turn around to head back home!

Always a stunning night when you go to the Nederlander Theatre in Chicago. Beautiful architecture, interior design & crazy-cool craftsmanship everywhere you look. And that’s well before you even get to see the talent onstage!!!

After a fun day at the ONE OF A KIND SHOW… we finally got all of Sarah’s stuff packed up, moved out & taken down to the loading dock by the union guys… nearly four hours later and it’s a beautiful night at the Merchandise Mart.

Colorful fall ivy climbing up the balusters. Leaves are still hanging on, gracefully clinging to the balustrade & changing colors… and it’s not every day that I get to use “balusters & balustrade” in a sentence!

Another barn… that has seen better times!

Looks like a strong wind must have come through… and sadly,
it looks like my favorite rustic roadside barn is starting to fall apart?!

Cruising’ through Joliet… heading south & crossing the DesPlaines River!

Art Deco glamour still exists in architecture… at The Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago. Who knew elevator doors could be so stylish?!

More beautiful architecture at The CIBC Theater… formerly The Shubert Theater… in downtown Chicago. Not quite as over-the-top as some of the other theaters in town, but still beautiful with its ceiling treatments, corbels & crystal chandeliers.
