Once the winds subsided further and the temperature climbed a bit, we ventured into Chicago. Our campsite in the state park was ideally situated within one mile of the Northern Indiana Commuter Transport Line. In other words, there was a train going directly into Chicago almost from our campsite. Catching the 9 A. M. train, we arrived with plenty of time to walk to the Art Institute of Chicago before their opening and still get a coffee for Alan.

Navy Pier was intended as our final site for the day but daylight and exhaustion won out and we headed back for the train station. We left just enough time for a cocktail before boarding the train back to the campsite. Arriving back at to the RV around 9 P.M., we bemoaned the fact that we just are not as young as we used to be.
