Romeo and Juliet on the Lake

Wednesday marked the opening of Chicago's Shakespeare Theater with a performance of "Romeo and Juliet".    I thought I'd snap away on the way.  This time, I even cleaned the windshield.  Since my driver was reluctant to slow down or stop in the four (or is it five?) lanes of traffic moving north on Lake Shore Drive, my opportunities had to be snatched as best I could.  The time is 5 p.m. and we are headed to dinner at our favorite grocery store, Fox and Obel.

The first lady of television talk's abode.  Great view of the lake!

The ferris wheel at Navy Pier.  It is in continuous motion.
