On the Road with Tom and Gloria travel blog

Once again my drive to Chicago was a wet one. I had the wipers going for the first two and a half hours of the trip. I left Spencer's at 10am so by 12:30 I was ready to stop, have lunch, and hope the storm would pass. Turned out to be a smart move - the rest of the drive was smooth sailing.

I went directly to The Monarch. Colin surprised me by taking the night off . We went to Harry Carey's Steakhouse for an early birthday dinner. At 9:00 we took a cab to Navy Pier - it was the perfect night to sit by the water and watch a spectacular, albeit short, fireworks show. During our walk home Colin constantly checked the progress of the Tiger baseball game. They won in 14 innings!

What a special day.
