Springtime in the Midwest always has glimpses of the summer to come, as well as echoes of the winter we just left. Recently we have had summer like weather that beckoned to be enjoyed on two wheels. Looking forward to diminishing echoes and warmer days.
I recently took a walk on the 606 with my grandson. What is the 606 you say? Here is some info from the excellent 606 website:
The story of The 606 begins just after the Great Chicago Fire. In their efforts to rebuild the city, the Chicago City Council gave permission for the Chicago & Pacific Railroad to lay tracks down the middle of Bloomingdale Ave. (1800 N) on Chicago’s Northwest side. The move helped connect goods from outlying rail ports to the busy Chicago River, and supported Chicago’s burgeoning industrial growth.
You can read more at the website. If you are ever in Chicago, it is worth taking some time to walk the 606. It was a cold day, but we just loved the sights and sounds of our walk.
Morning workout at the gym… check! Taking time to give thanks for a new day and enjoy a sunrise… check! Have a great weekend. “The nook” is a nickname for my home town, Minooka, IL. Thanks for stopping by.
For most of February the temperature has been below zero. We are currently above freezing, and it looks like we will stay there for a while….say, for the rest of the year! These are some images taken at our home. We had a ski slope in the front and beautiful snow diamonds in the back. Thanks for stopping by.
The third post from a recent trip to New York, when I took a long hike on the West End of Jones Beach on a cold, windy, winter day. Thanks for stopping by!
The second post of some images from my recent trip to Long Island. This is the West End of Jones Beach State Park. It was a fiercely cold and windy day, but it was also a beautiful day. Thanks for stopping by.
Back to my recent trip to New York and Jones beach for a few posts. I grew up on Long Island which, for me, also meant growing up at Jones Beach. Ever since I left the East Coast for the Midwest (back in the dark ages – 1985) I have been returning to visit family in NY and have also returned to this beach. Through all those years I never visited the West End of Jones Beach. During this last trip to NY, I decided to go exploring. It was an absolutely gorgeous day that featured frigid temperatures, pushed lower by a strong North wind that carried stinging sand off shore. It was awesome!
the doctors said you were leaving i don’t see a world without you time stopped and crashed and just shattered no God please not you so many whispered ‘Our Father…’ pleading grace and mercy for you He heard all our cries every whisper a new story was written for you
undeserving and grateful we’re still here and i’m blessed to be loved by you every breath is a gift in every joy every sorrow each moment a fading song but we sing out loud into the unknown tomorrow time may fracture again so we whisper
our Father in heaven above may your name be first in our eyes may your kingdom thrive in our hearts and lives may your will be done in our love while we’re still here on earth as it is in heaven
Back to my recent trip to New York for the next few posts. Just love the wind, the clouds, the endless waves and the distant edge of the sea...
