Ohio, Indiana & Illinois

We arrived in Ohio eager to see Toledo but were disappointed with the condition of the city!  Never got out of the car to tour the city but found yet another casino on our drive home.  Seems every state has a casino(Rose you should have done this trip with us).   As you can see, we had an awesome site right on the lake so we sat out and enjoyed the view!

After leaving Ohio, we headed to Indiana to meet up with friends we met in Florida.  We haven't known Frank and Angie very long but feel like we've known them forever.  We enjoyed a dinner out, a camp fire and some good conversation.  Hope to see them in Florida this winter if California doesn't work out!

Now for Illinois, Chicago is one of the greatest cities I've ever seen!  Living in Boston, you can see we are very similar but in a smaller scale.  We sat on Navy Pier and had lunch while watching the sail boats and ferries go by.  Its unbelievable to look out at the water and understand that this is a lake and not the ocean!  I put a picture of the Buckingham Fountain, and the city from the park right on the water.  As of today, this is my favorite city.

  1. Chicago is a beautiful city, and I thought the same thing when I first stood and looked upon Lake Michigan, that it doesn't look like a lake at all, but an ocean!

    I hope you're enjoying it there, and I hope to meet up with you later in your trip!
