Susan took me on the Chicago Architectural Foundation's river tour on Sunday, October 13. It was stunning, mesmerizing. I recommend the tour! It was the same day as the Chicago Marathon. We also strolled Lurie Gardens as knowledgeable caretakers planted and trimmed. We came into Chi-town on the South Shore line out of the Dune Park station. Trouble and traffic free!
Sailors from around the world were at Gull Lake for a regatta of vintage Star boats. The Star is the oldest one-design racing class in America. The boats have been carefully restored and participated in lively races over the weekend. The Vintage Gold Cup is the brainchild of Don Parfet. The weekend event included a tribute to Larry Whipple, founding member of the Star Class Legacy Foundation.
