This is my kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of people, too
People who smile at you
And each time I roam, Chicago is
Calling me home, Chicago is
Why I just grin like a clown
It's my kind of town......................................Frank Sinatra
We have really enjoyed our stay here in Hammond Indiana but the best thing about it is that Chicago is just 30 mins away by train :)
We have done a lot of touristy sight-seeing and we have enjoyed every minute of it.
The next leg of our Loop trip is going to be the Rivers heading south to Alabama and Florida. We have heard it is boring and long days, and even though we look forward to moving on, we wanted to make sure we saw as much as our tired old legs could handle.
So here are some pictures we would like to share with you from the past days.
We hope you enjoy then as much as we enjoyed making the memories that go with them.
|Looking East toward Hammond Indianna and the marina where|
we have spent the past week.
|Another view from the high Sears / Willis Towers|
|The Sanitary / Illinois river. We will be heading through down-town Chicago|
in a few days making our way south, continuing on our Loop
|The Museum of Science and Industry was one of the TOP places |
we saw in Chicago, and probably Gary's favourite.
( Planes, cars, boats, Submarines.....You get the picture)
|The Museum of Science and Industry|
A Chicago must-see as far as we are concerned.
|Science made fun|
|With his Nascar hero, Jeff Gordon|
The U-505 SubmarineOn June 4, 1944 the American boat USS Chatelain captured
this German U Boat. It is now a land mark exibit at the museum.
|It was brought to Chicago and is on display in a specially built|
large basement room in the museum
|Many special-effect stations all around the museum|
Here I am holding lights in my empty arms.
