Although we arrived yesterday, today we feel that our journey is officially over. We visited the all important Route 66 signs, and ate in Lou Mitchell’s which is a Route 66 tradition:
Pauline spent ages looking for someone that she considered may be trustworthy enough to take this picture for us!
Three “Begin” signs all within a hundred yards! We met some Brazilian Bikers at this sign, who were just about to start their journey. They were very excited!
Pauline’s “light lunch” – Cantaloupe, Tuna, Cottage Cheese, Pineapple, Tomato and Pickle:
My Apple and Cheese omelette. Sounds a bit weird from an English perspective, but it was delicious:
The Union Station was just along the road:
We spent most of the day getting on and off an open-top tour bus which is always a good way to see a big city. Some random skyline pictures:
Not sure I would like to reverse a car into these spaces:
The famous “El”. The only thing missing were Cop Cars chasing Bad Guys at high speed underneath it:
This is supposed to be a Flamingo…
Us looking straight into the Sun:
Buckingham Fountain – copied from a fountain at Versailles:
We spent quite a while at the Navy Pier. Pity I never noticed that the camera lens was getting a bit smeary:
The Rolling Stones’ Exhibition is on in Chicago until July. These tongues were everywhere on the Pier:
We went on the Ferris Wheel:
The Ground Floor level inside is just shops and eateries, so we were surprised to find a tranquil garden on the upper level:
