We also love traveling to Chicago because it's a great walking city and Rocco and I love our morning walks along the lakefront.
This time we took a different route to meet up with our pals Sugar the Golden Retriever and Dolly the Doxie.
We planned to meet up at Oz Park, a lovely little city park with a Wizard of Oz theme. Even though the park is fairly close to Lincoln Park, my usual place to walk in Chicago, I had never been there.
And, since it was the weekend of the annual Chicago Air and Water Show (with loads of people and traffic), we knew we'd have to walk there, because driving from my mom's location is out of the question.

We took a nice walk around the park and then headed to Chez Moi for brunch. Yum!
Sugar visited with Rocco on our side of the table and Dolly was on the other side. We had a great brunch and visit! Rocco wore a purple hair band in honor of Sugar's purple shoes. Heehee!
We love finding new places to walk AND meet up with pals along the way. It's the best combination! Have you found a new place to walk recently?
