After the Train Day exhibit, I was thinking about heading over to the Shedd Aquarium. I figured that I would take the Water Taxi over there.
Looking down the street.
As I was waiting for the taxi, I decided to watch some of the boats passing by.
One of the tour boats passing by.
And my ride over to Navy Pier.
The river is a pretty nice place to get some pictures of the buildings.
I kind of liked this shot.
Continue down the river. It was a little foggy on Saturday and that made for some pretty nice pictures.
A Chicago Police Boat.
Looking up at the Wrigley Tower.
A view of the taxi.
Looking back at the Wrigley Tower.
A statue at Navy Pier.
Looking down Navy Pier.
A tour boat named after Cap Streeter. He was born in 1837 near Flint, Michigan. His legend is that a storm blew his boat on a sand bar near Chicago. From that, he built a development. Eventually, this land would come to be known as Streeterville. The truth is a little more muddy.
The water taxi that would take me over to Shedd Aquarium.
A view of Navy Pier from the water.
As I said, it was pretty foggy. That made for an interesting looking skyline.
So I kept taking pictures of the skyline as I passed it.
