|On a splendidly sunny day in Chicago, my school took part
in their annual walk-a-thon along Chicago's Lakeshore.
|While I live in the near suburbs of the city, I seldom make it
to the lovely Lakeshore, and when I'm there I always tell myself I should
visit more often.
|Several of these sailboats were just going out into the
lake--I'm guessing to prepare for a race.
|There is always a multitude of bikers and joggers on the path.
|I took some terrific shots while walking along this fence.
|And all I had to do was lean over to see these ducks
swimming toward me. I fear they were looking for treats, and I had none.
|There are plenty of trees along the way, providing delicious
shade for overheated joggers.
|My favorite street. :)
|I found this little bicycle rather picturesque against the blue water.
|These geese found both the shade and some lunch.
|Some kind walkers accommodated my goofy picture idea.
|Nearing the end!
|And getting a well-deserved rest before boarding the buses.
If you visit Chicago, spend some time walking on the path along Lake Michigan.
You'll be inspired by its beauty!
