City #4- Chicago- A Day At Navy Pier
CHICAGO- The 3:30 a.m. wake-up was necessary to visit the Windy City in a day and still come back to Tuscaloosa.
We landed at Midway Airport by just about 8:15 a.m.
The cab ride from Midway to Navy Pier was a not a short (or a cheap) one-- a $30 one at that.
And than, there's Navy Pier- HUGE- JUST HUGE! I made the mistake of coming in the wrong end of this attraction and we walked and we walked and we walked all the way to the other end of the Pier-- the more scenic end where 500+ people were already in place for the Adobe CS3 Creative License Conference.
This above photo was taken from the other side of the room where more than 500 people turned for the first in a series of one day conferences. The photographer, Terry White, wrote more about today's conference on his blog.
He was the main presenter at the conference, about which I'll write more later.
