More on Chicago
We spent most of last Saturday in Chicago. Got off CTA at Washingston Station again. Went to Marshall Field's for lunch. One whole floor of the store is restaurants.
We choose The Walnut Room and had a table at the corner window for a great view. The store like many things in Chicago reminded us of Paris.
Then it was on to the Navy Pier. It is wonderful to see cities restoring & revitalizing their waterfront areas. It looks like it would be a very busy place in the summer. There is a wonderful collection of stain glass art including many Tiffany pieces. Maybe I should make a quilt from Natalie & Nancy's book- Landscape Quilts. So many ideas-so little time!!
Then it was off or should I say up the John Hancock Tower. There was a Wedding taking place so we had a bit of a wait for the elevator but it was worth it. Great views.
