Beautiful Oak Park

Well this morning I headed over to Oak Park to do the 5 km walk.  The sun was shining, it was warm...despite a strong wind that brought the clouds in earlier than predicted. 

Anyway...it was a lovely walk.  I think I was more impressed with the beautiful old Victorian houses decorated for Hallowe'en than the Prairie style houses of Frank Lloyd Wright although they were interesting.  It is a lovely area but of course you need major bucks to live in those huge houses.  I'd rather live simply and travel thank you!!! 

Afterwards I stopped off at Whole Foods market and got some fresh squash soup and fresh fruit.  A simple supper tonight of soup and a baguette with cut up cheddar cheese.  And fruit for dessert!!!  Delicious!

I had lunch at Delia's which had been recommended by the tourism office...sad to say I was not impressed and I will leave it at that.  I hate when I waste my money on food I don't enjoy that much.  I picked up a couple of little goodies at Whole Foods so will heat those up for my supper tomorrow night. 

Storm clouds are rolling in so it will add ambiance to the Haunted house tonight!!! 

Meanwhile here are some photos taken on my walk.

Staying cool on the prairies and some future plans

My little burst of travel is over and it's back to reality.  Ah well, it was fun while it lasted.  And reality at home really isn't...
