After a mimosa filled brunch, wishing the happy couple farewell, and saying goodbye to all our friends, Adam and I made our way over to Millennium Park to check out "The Bean".
Technically, this shiny stainless steel sculpture shaped like a legume by Anish Kapor is called Cloud Gate; it was brilliantly constructed to reflect and distort images of the Chicago skyline, and its visitors. It's an iconic work of art, stunning and complex, and crowded.
We had lots of fun here. We wandered down to the banks of Lake Michigan and throughout the park, where I finally got to enjoy a Chicago hot dog! I loaded her up with yellow mustard, sweet relish, onions, tomatoes, spicy sport peppers and a pickle. These last few hours were a perfect and relaxing end to a great weekend in Chicago.
