Grant & Millennium Park

Chicago-2821 by you.

Our next stop in Chicago was to head down to Grant Park & Millennium Park. I loved the great architecture, wonderful art work and of course, the great big green areas.

All this- right in the middle of downtown, surrounded by skyscrapers.

This new amphitheatre looks like a fabulous place to catch a concert.

The lawn area itself was closed off, but I just loved the feeling of being surrounded by modern art while at a concert.

Even the speakers for the rear portions of the hill were very cool.

Technically called Cloud Gate, and NOT the Bean, we had a blast with this hip sculpture.

What a great husband- even carrying my camera bag for me! Love the reflection of the skyline.

Everywhere we turned in the park there was some unique and fun artwork to enjoy.

Then we came across a very cool waterpark. There was a long skinny area, with these two giant screens on each end facing each other. The images were usually of faces & would blink and move slightly.

There was water in the middle and water falling down the sides....

But occasionally a mouth with squirt out a big stream of water.

We walked past the Lollapalooza concert & to the lake front, where we strolled back up North for some lunch at the Navy Pier.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Got lots of fun new camera stuff for Christmas- can't wait to start playing with it.
