Saturday a friend and I enjoyed the Chicago Architecture Center’s Riverwalk tour. Although the weather was supposed to be warm and sunny, we had a day with threatening skies and temperatures in the high 40s. It’s a tour you want to do on a fine day.
Our docent was knowledgeable and explained the history of the Riverwalk, which used to be a commercial and industrial area. Then the space just wasn’t used. Now several areas between the bridges have been developed into “rooms.” So one “room” houses eateries, while another has water gardens for educational purposes. Another “room” is for performances with the idea that a boat with a band or entertainers can dock and people can sit and watch.
The tour ran 40 minutes and was cut a bit short due to the weather. Just as it ended, the rains started to pour. While this tour isn’t as information rich, I did learn a few things and enjoyed the stroll.
Tickets: $26, which is pricey compared to their other tours since our tour didn’t cover much distance and was only 45 minutes long.
(Our tour was free because, I guess, it’s a new tour and the docents needed practice.)

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 blogger. The beauty of it is that it’s free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.
This week as it’s Triduum, I went with a religious theme.
This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge, which I’m joining for the first time after seeing Cee’s post today, inspires bloggers to search their archives for photos that portray worship. After the horror of the Notre Dame fire, the sacred is on the minds of many.
