Fun At Navy Pier

After we visited the aquarium we walked around the city for awhile and ended up at Navy Pier. We took a ride on the ferris wheel and had some fun with a couple fun house mirrors. It was a long walk to the end of the pier, but it was worth it.






The REALLY tall black building in the photo below is the John Hancock.










Seagulls in Chicago?!!

Shedd Aquarium

On our second day in Chicago we visited Shedd Aquarium. It wasn't as AMAZING as I expected it to be, but it was still pretty cool. My favorite parts were the Caribbean Reef, the Beluga Whales, and the dolphins. The videos at the bottom are of the dolphins playing and the Caribbean Reef.

Chicago

We arrived around 1 o'clock on Sunday. So, we still had most of the day to explore the city. The first place we went..... Best Buy, yeah that's right. I left the memory card in the printer, oh well. So, armed with my new memory card we walked a few feet and went to the John Hancock Observatory. Very cool, and informational. There was a multimedia tour with the voice of David Schwimmer, who is from Chicago. We had awesome views of the city.


I could almost touch the clouds! Not really, but almost....


Navy Pier, we walked all the way down that and all the way back up.

A view of the beach and Lakeshore Drive.




I was standing at the very bottom of the building.
