Chicago, Windmills, Classic Car Shopping

Navy Pier - Chicago
We are home from a trip to Chicago.  Lakeshore Drive is such a beautiful part of the city - and the traffic was not bad when we were there.  Big cities fascinate me - but I sure don't want to live in one.  Lake Michigan is beautiful - are we really sure it's not an ocean?  Sure looks like one.

Fowler Ridge Wind Farm is  Benton County, Indiana. Spread over 50,000 acres, it is one of the largest onshore wind farms in the world.  We drove for about 30 minutes alongside the windmills - yeah I know they're called turbines.  They are huge.  

We bought a Classic Car!  The one Ken had been hoping to find for a long time.  He's a happy man.

Loaded that beauty on an auto transport trailer and headed home.  Lots of fun driving home - people would pass and give us a thumbs up or beep the horn.  After passing us, one truck slowed until we got beside it and held a note in the window asking what year our car was. 

Home safely - Life is good.
