A day at Millennium Park in The Windy City - Part 1

We hopped on a train yesterday and spent the day at Millennium Park in Chicago with our friend Lori and her son Avery. I even bought three Chicago postcards to send to Jennifer.

The Chicago skyline reflected in the Bean.

Under the bean.

There are two large fountains facing each other with an area of water in between. Faces appear on each.

Then the faces open their mouths and a stream of water pours out.

And after that a torrent of water falls from the top of the fountain.

It's a nice place to cool off. If you don't want to get soaked you can just take off your shoes and stand in the cool water.

Tomorrow I'll share some pictures of the gardens.

Keep on sharing. I've heard some say they look mostly at art blogs for the art part but I live in a really rural area so seeing the world through another's eye is great for me. Love the pictures you took. Like your blog. Plan to come back and look at your links too.
