What a Day

I will do my best to capture yesterday’s fun. We went downtown. The first stop was the Willis Tower. Formerly the Sears Tower.

What fun! What a view!

We even walked out on the glass perch.

But that’s not for everyone. The guy next to us was so scared. Poor man.

I love being with my friends!

This has been an amazing trip so far. We are going on the mobster tour today. We are also seeing an exhibit on morbid things. Then dinner and Second City. Architectural tour tomorrow before we head off for Iowa.

  1. That looks like a total blast. I’m not afraid of heights, but I don’t have a lot of faith in the strength of a glass balcony that high up, lol. Not unless it’s several FEET thick and very, very well supported.

    Love the glass perch! You all look like you are having a great time, keep up the good work

  3. Wow…. which building was that w/ the glass floors? Yipes, I’d be too freaked out to go out there. I give you credit.

  4. Simply grand. Just looking at you out over the city is really scary. So very glad you are having a ball. Yes on the Architecture tour.

  5. Oh, HE’LL NO!!!!! I could not push myself to stand on that glass!!!!!!

  6. You could have been seeing my husband — he not only didn’t go out on the perch, he didn’t make 2 steps out of the elevator and he was hugging the wall next to it. — I hope you will find time to drop by at 602 Ash Cove – I would love to meet you in person — and I know the personnel at Siesta would love to see you again, too.

  7. Gad, how long ago did I go to Chicago? It must be nearly twenty years. (I’m pretty sure it was still the Sears Tower then.) The view is gorgeous — as long as I have something to grab for dear life.

  8. Poolie, you and your friends are adorable! That platform scares the heck out of me but I’ll have to step on it one day. When did the Sears tower become the Willis tower?
