Chicago by Train!

Well today we took the Metra train from Joliet, Illinois, were we are in a nice RV park, to Chicago! It took a little over an hour & was great as there is so much traffic in Chicago & parking can be expensive. We paid $10 each RT because it was a weekend!! We also did a Groupon for the Chicago Red Trolley & Double Decker Tour. Great & it takes you all over town & you can hop on & off. Went to Navy Pier & had a yummy Chicago Deep Dish Pizza! It was great! It was a small & we brought most of it home! Did The Ledge at the Skydeck in the Willis Tower! The tallest building in the Western Hemisphere! The Architecture of the buildings in Chicago is amazing! Some from the 1800’s & some Ultra Modern! The River Walk is awesome too! It was beautiful weather & a fun day! Put Chi Town on your bucket list! 🇺🇸😎

We love the UP! Honorary Yoopers!!

We only have four more days in the UP! I love it up here! Surrounded by Great Lakes & Rivers & more Lakes! The weather has been awesome!! Cool with breezes, occasional thunderstorms that come & go quickly! We’ve eaten a lot of fish! Walleye, Perch, hamburgers…oh 🤣we’ve had all kinds of good food up here! Tried a Pastie (Pass Tee) for the first time & have had them a few more times! Had a Vernors, only in Michigan ginger soda! We’ve embraced being Yoopers!! The Michiganders have been so welcoming!! We went for a walk on the boardwalk & saw the lighthouse in town (Manistique) again today. About every 10th vehicle on Hwy 2 is an RV! If you ever have the chance to visit the UP you won’t be disappointed! Mackinac Island is like a step back in time & so enchanting, Soo Locks & Sault (Soo) Ste Marie is just a darling town & dates back to the 1600’s! That’s old for America! 🇺🇸 In our two years of full timing & just starting our third year, we have seen so much of this beautiful Country!! And excited that there is so much more to see! Have a blessed week! We had a sundae to finish our day!😳😎
