"In the Mood" Fall Tour, Day off in Chicago

We had a day off in Chicago which was one of the many highlights of the fall tour. It was a beautiful day and we had a blast.

The first thing we headed for was the skydeck of the Sears Tower.

That's a pretty nice view from way up there.

We got some Chicago-style deep dish pizza which was excellent, but I think we still like the Armands pizza the best. It's DC based Chicago-style pizza.

Then we were thrilled to discover that there were tickets available for the Chicago Symphony that afternoon. What an incredible orchestra! They played Mahler's Fourth Symphony.

After the concert we headed up to the Navy Pier to meet the bus. We rode the huge ferris wheel and had cotton candy. It was nice to have a day to ourselves for a change. It was completely delightful in every way.
