The End of Summer...

As dusk appears sooner each night and waking up to the crisp feeling of fall, I know my summer is coming to an end.  As I start to reflect on my summer, I realize I've done some pretty amazing things!  From concerts and movies in the park, to relaxing on my rooftop, enjoying a Sox or Cubs game or entertaining visitors, I've done it all!  One highlight of my summer is that I had the opportunity to volunteer with the Chicago Yacht Club race committee!!  It provided me with an opportunity to learn about sailing and be on Lake Michigan in the summer!!  Though I got sea sick once, I'm looking forward to a few more races this fall before retiring until next year!  Sailing was probably the highlight of my summer!!  My friend and I went on a chartered sailboat through Chicago Sailboat Charters for an evening on Lake Michigan!  The city is breathtaking at sunset and with the full moon, it was a sight I will never forget!  We made great friends on the boat as well, which made for a fun night.  I definitely have enjoyed my summer outside this year!!

Chicago has so much to offer and I'm discovering new events to do each day like Jazzin' at the Shedd, Family Feud Trivia, watching the fireworks and mini golfing!  I'm sad summer is getting ready to come to an end, but fall is my favorite time of year, and I'm sure many adventures are in store!!
