A Great Walk
As I said this morning, in previous post, Stagg and I decided to walk downtown. Google maps said 2 hours and 9 minutes. We did it in 2 hours and 15 minutes...but we stopped twice. Stagg is now taking a well deserved wolf nap.
We saw two new pieces of public art downtown today and this was one of them. The original painting titled American Gothic is part of the Art Institutes collection. I don't know about this I must say. I guess it is good for tourists and might get a few folks into the art galleries.
The view from our lawyers office right over Millenium Park and an awesome view of the lake. We have a weird coincidence...the lawyer I found, who I liked his attitude and voice...used to be one of Stagg's mums students!
We finished up with the lawyer just before noon so we took our lunches that we packed into the Cultural Centre. Just in time for a jazz band in downstairs main lobby and a piano playing upstairs.
