It was a breezy morning on the bike.
A beautiful sunrise… but methinks this is the last of the sun we’ll see today
as the clouds began to move in for the day!

After yesterday’s windy century ride, this morning’s little jaunt along the lakefront was a simple “walk in the park.” Not so windy. Not so far. Just a bike and a beautiful sunrise.

Clear skies with a cool breeze all the way down for a beautiful sunrise
on Chicago’s Navy Pier.

Looks like Navy Pier is gearing up for a busy Pride Weekend.

While the statue of Bob Newhart looks on… according to the Navy Pier website…
Designed for visitor participation, lie on the couch and pour out your troubles to bronze Bob Hartley, the 1970s psychologist from The Bob Newhart Show. Created by Studio EIS in New York, the life-sized statue was commissioned by nostalgia cable channel TV Land and unveiled to the City of Chicago on July 27, 2004 by the company’s president Larry W. Jones. In November 2004, the statue was moved to Navy Pier.

While it was another beautiful cloud-free morning,
it was a completely different story a bit more inland…

… with layers of misty fog hanging low on the golf course & grassy areas
streaking beams of sunlight through the leaves & mist.

Another stunning morning with colorful clouds blowing through the City.
A beautiful start to the day with predictions of rain to come this afternoon.

Another stunning sunrise! Love the red ripples reflecting
on Lake Michigan on another cloudy morning.

Yes, it was this past Saturday before the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival. The morning colors were spectacular… but just not enough time to post them before rushing to open my tent at the art fair. But trust me… it was worth the wait!!!

So this morning’s ride was a bit anticlimactic.
Not many dramatic sunrise colors bouncing off the clouds.
Just a warm morning ride along the lakefront before the heat of the day set in.
