We have lived in the Chicago area for 16 years now and these images are from my first visit to the Riverwalk in Chicago. You can read about the history of this beautiful part of Chicago here.
I’m catching up with a bunch of images that I have taken over the last month. December 19 was a beautiful day, so I took the Yamaha out and enjoyed a ride.
On a recent motorcycle ride I went past this property, and because I love old, abandoned structures, it caught my eye, and I decided that I was going to return, so, I did. This was the Dwight Correctional Center, located just west of Dwight, Illinois. It was the state’s only Level One maximum-security adult female facility. It was opened in 1930 and closed in 2013. The buildings are beautiful, in a sad way, and I will return to further explore this 160 acre location.
Took a stroll down Milwaukee Ave. in Logan Square, Chicago with my oldest grandson. This is what we saw. Thanks for stopping by!
The first three images were taken from my front porch, and just a 2 minute ride from my home. The sky, light and clouds were just spectacular. The rest are from a ride today on my new Yamaha Tracer 900. Have a great weekend everyone!
Just love visiting my elderly parents in New York and, going to my happy place…
Perhaps… just perhaps the last motorcycle ride of 2019…? (nope). 😁
I haven’t quite decided if I appreciate the Jay Pritzker Pavillion. The modern, asymmetrical, what-am-i-looking-at? design is, for me, as fascinating as it is frustrating. Yeah.. I tend to be one of those symmetry people. For more check out this link: https://www.archdaily.com/892320/the-jay-pritzker-pavilion-gehry-partners
