Snapshot Sunday: Navy Pier
A Chi-town classic: Navy Pier. Being able to see the lights from our hotel room tempted us, and we decided to go out and experience the sights, sounds and smells of the pier. It was a beautiful night on Lake Michigan and it would have been a crime to miss it and take a taxi. So we walked. My dad, "Sacagawea" as we later lovingly dubbed him, wanted to find the shortest way possible - which turned a nice half hour stroll into a seriously sketchy walking-so-fast-you're-almost-running type of walk (during which I'm pretty sure we witnessed a drug deal).
To his credit though, it was indeed shorter and we did arrive safely to the lights of Navy Pier, where we had a great time oohing and ahhing over the fireworks and seeing the whole pier from the top of the ferris wheel.
Needless to say, we took the entire half hour walk back, which was just fine by me.
