Embracing Fall and North Bound
Posted at 6:32 pm , on October 19, 2014
Inhibition: To explore the Lakeshore Trail beyond my comfort zone (all week no sun).
Betty’s Response: The temperature’s above 20 right?!
Experience: Before my Lakeshore ride north, I wanted to head over to the Daly Plaza for one of the last farmer’s markets this season and to search out some noodles.
Daly Plaza, Farmers Market (as Picasso’s Chicago sculpture looks on) every Thursday until the end of October
Although I hate to see summer go beautiful colors and flavors of fall ease the pain.
Relishing my farmer market finds, as the rain starts to sprinkle, I have an absolutely scrumptious lunch at the Slurping Turtle, 116 W. Hubbard while Betty awaits a ride.
NEXT! The lake!
Again I begin my ride at Oak Street and Michigan but this time head north.

As it begins to rain I cut over to Lincoln Park.
Chicago’s Belmont Harbor, stunning.
What I didn’t know: That even though my ride was cut short because of rain my trip, along with today’s experiences, was a real joy…and what’s a little rain anyway!
So as always Betty and I extend the invitation to you to get out there and SHOW ME WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW!!!
