Wow! I've been away for a while. I won't give up, though! So here's my last 12 days. I will try my best to explain them, and I will try to keep updating more often.
How is everyone else doing with school starting? I think that about knocked me off the edge, but I will survive! We also have company until the 14th, and I'm loving it!
Keep up the good work, my 365 friends!
Outside of the John G. Shedd Aquarium, there were huge waves hitting the jogging path. I tried to capture some of them from a distance. Surprisingly, you'd still see a jogger or two or three come into the picture. I didn't get a good wave when they jogged by, though.
All the garbage piled up along the corners of the jogging path. I squatted down to get a good view, then a little wave came over. I thought, "Cool, I'll wait for the next one." Well, the "next one" became a wall of water that send me running. I had good enough sense to snap a picture even if I was jumping backwards and making a run for it at the same time!

Another near and dear photo since it's the Chicago Fire Dept boat! I captured the old boat as it was on it's way out of commission. Mayor and Chicago Fire Department officials dedicated the new $8.5 million fire boat at Burhman Harbor in honor of Firefighter Christopher Wheatley, killed fighting a fire in 2010, Thursday, May 5, 2011.
No Swimming! But, would you want to? Those waves were little, but the undertow is great. You could barely see this little painted sign on the concrete.
The Wrigley Building is a gorgeous HUGE building along the Chicago River. It's hard to do it justice in a little photo, but here is the top of it towering over Michigan Avenue and the Chicago River.
