I really enjoyed visiting Chicago! The weather was so good while we were there. There are some very striking buildings. The middle one here reminds me of the Chrysler Building, my all-time favourite slyscraper.
There were lots of flags flying on Navy Pier. We had a wonderful time when Mafia Wife and her family came to see us. We visited the aquarium, had lunch (with MW's incredible chocolate fudge for desert!) and then took a free trolley bus to Navy Pier. we just strolled along enjoying the sites. And of course taking photos! here is one of MW and Phil with their cameras.

I am slowly getting unpacked and laundry done. The cats are really thrilled to be home and want lots of attention. I'm getting gradually back into my old routine but missing my friends in the US so much.
I haven't had lots of time to look through my photos yet but will hopefully get a few more edited later today. But first...lunch!
