Elsa and Judi and I engage in a simple game of "Cell Phone Wars" - I think I won cuz I got 'em both in one shot! ;-)
Elsa awaits the boat ride to see the Navy Pier fireworks.
Judi also awaits the fireworks on the boat. I probably had the same expression that she did that night.

Seeing this painting at the Art Institute of Chicago was even neater after seeing the 3D version at Troy's Sculptures on the Square exhibit.
From our second night time boat ride, the city of Chicago at dusk.
A shot from my morning bike ride. I'm probably 6 miles or so from Judi's place when I took this photo.
You can see my shadow (and that of the sign beside me) as I look over the Mississippi near Galena, IL. That's Iowa on the other side of the river.
The front of the resort we stayed in near Galena, IL.
We had to climb up to the top of the levy to get to this foot bridge to cross the Galena river and get to the town proper.
I never did get a good enough shot to really get a feel for how high up the stairs go in Galena. I think Judi got a nice one though.

From the size of this photo, you can't hardly see the caption on the statue, but it says "Grant Our Citizen." I had to get Judi to pose in front of it, of course.
