It's About Me, The Relatives, Traveling

More of Chicago

On Friday, I was able to escape again for a walk around downtown. This time, I walked the few short blocks east to Navy Pier.

There were great city views from the end of the pier.

After that, I walked north on the boardwalk next to the lake. I kept looking for a place to cross Lake Shore Drive and ended up all the way at Oak Street Beach. Without even meaning to, I walked back towards Aunt Sandra’s down the infamous Michigan Avenue.

I passed Hancock Building on the way.

Finally, after 5.22 miles later, I was back home. 

After more packing in the afternoon, Aunt Sandra rewarded me with a fantastic dinner out with my Aunt Gale, cousin Jeff and his girlfriend, Jill. 

It was a really interesting, unique restaurant called Texas de Brazil

Treat yourself to our 50-60 item seasonal salad area that includes appetizers, gourmet vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken, and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread.

After enjoying items from the salad bar, I sampled all of the meats, a low-carb eaters delight!

And of course, since Gale was there, we had martinis.

It was a great evening with family. Thanks for an amazing dinner, Aunt Sandy!

  2. That’s the Hancock building on Michigan Ave., next to Water Tower Place. Willis Tower is on Wacker Dr. πŸ™‚ I have thoroughly enjoyed your trip to Chicago. I’ll be there next weekend for day.
