Yes - that is beach life in January on the shores of Lake Michigan. We had some extra time to kill as we had reserved a parking spot downtown, but were due to arrive too early. I suggested we made a stop by the Indiana sand dunes, and it was beautiful.
In addition it was great to get a break from Michigan and soak up a little city life. One of my favorites is the bean. It changes with the season and the time of day - but always pretty to see:
We also did a lot of walking up and down the magnificent mile. Primarily to get to NafNaf grill - the place where everyone in the family is happy with dinner. Including the person who gets to pay. Only disadvantage is that it is right next to the ehm Voldemort tower (our dear leader who I shall not name in this post).
We even found freshly made cotton candy
This morning we got up early to go to the Hancock center for our 9AM appointment. Here we are - the 3 of us, who volunteered to figure out where you actually get in to that darn tower
And 30 minutes later we were all done. Lucky for us the drive back is also in amazing sun shine, so we have planned accordingly and bought lunch at Whole Foods which we plan to eat by the water❤️
