We left Chicago yesterday, took the route through the heart of down town.   It was AMAZING seeing the buildings from the water winding through the city.  The city tour is sure to be one of the highlights of the trip.

Will add more pictures when get better connection.

The low point of the day was saying good bye to Amanda,  she went back home last night.   It was GREAT fun having her travel with us, but sad to see her go.  Today Henry and Mary left to go back home, also another sad event.

We plan to continue down the rivers today. We’ve already collected many boat cards from other Loopers. Over Ice plans to follow us southward into the next series of locks.

Oh, and another tip, Boat Hair; Don’t Care! Right, Pam S.?
