My day started like any other– waking up, cleaning up a bit, ruminating on the class I taught last night and whether it went all right. Then things got weird.
First, I have crazy cats. For instance, this is where Nasturtium decided she wanted to hang out. Once she was up there, it wasn’t so great. She got down pretty quick and returned to her normal activities of sleeping and meowing at birds.
After this, I was hanging out around my apartment (I currently don’t work Thursdays, and was playing hooky from a meeting at work that I could have gone to, but wouldn’t have been paid for attending). Around 1 or so I got restless and decided to go for a walk to the dry cleaners to drop off some stuff, and then maybe around the neighborhood to the grocery store or the library.
Here’s where I ended up.
Yes, it is only 4.1 miles from my apartment to Diversey Harbor, and it is possible to walk right to the lake without turning or going much out of the way. My dirty little secret is that I love walking around Lincoln Park (the neighborhood). I also love open bodies of water, so this was an entertaining walk, and didn’t even take that long.
