Today was my last full day in Chicago, which also happened to be my Aunt Sandy’s birthday. I am glad that I was here to help her celebrate. After a relaxing morning and early afternoon finishing up the moving preparations, Aunt Sandy took me on the Architectural Boat Tour of Chicago.
The 90-minute tour was a fascinating lesson of Chicago architectural history. I learned interesting facts such as the Trump Tower Chicago is the second tallest building in Chicago (behind Willis Tower), the fourth tallest building in the US and the 16th tallest building in the world.
I thoroughly enjoyed the boat tour and it was the highlight of my week. I am finding that as I get older, I enjoy more and more historical information and am finding these types of tours to be quite interesting.
It was a great 10-days being in the Chicago area and helping my aunt. We accomplished much and she is well-prepared for the rest of the move over the next few weeks. I am so grateful for the time together. I will miss our nightly scrabble games and will retain the lessons that she taught me. See you next in Tuscon, Aunt Sandy!
