Chicago- May 20
For a change we did not do museums, city or farm tours today. Instead we drove into Chicago and rode our bikes along the shores of Lake Michigan. It was a beautiful sunny day with a bit of a strong breeze. The temperature was 87 degrees, the warmest day of the year so far for Chicago. There were a lot of people out in this area, but we were still able to navigate our bikes on the paths along the shoreline. Our folding bikes do attract looks and comments from people- I will post a picture of John with his bike on this blog. We went a total of about six miles on our bikes, which was about all we could do because of the warm sun and wind. After that we met our son Mike for supper at the Berghoff restaurant. It is an over 100 year old German-American dining place with lots of ambiance and good food.
