Chicago and a break (NOT breakdown!)

September 25, Monday, Hammond Marina and Chicago

On likely our last day in Chicago we decided to visit the Field Natural History Museum and maybe walk around the grounds as well. Well, what a wonderful museum and surrounding area!

We spent most of our time in the Ancient Americas area, which was fascinating, comprehensive and so well put together. What an education and visual experience it was. It covered many different north and south american societies from the earliest times to the invasion of the Europeans. I hadn’t realized how many early civilizations had evolved to build significant cities  in the Americas.

The museum is also the proud owner of SUE, the most complete T Rex in the world.

Tomorrow we are flying to Florida to visit our daughter Sarah, husband Chris and to celebrate Arden’s 2nd birthday! So no more blog updates until next week. TTFN! (ta ta for now)
