A Working River…

The Chicago River has been transformed from a mostly “working” river to a recreational treasure. However, near my office, it’s still a working river; there’s a cement factory nearby.

I like that most of the barges I see are monogramed with my initials. I always check the number on the hull. It would be very fun to spot one with my birthday someday! #goals


Cormorants are one my my favorite species of birds. Norwegian tradition puts them on the same footing as cardinals in western cultures. In Norway, if a person is lost at sea they return as a cormorant to visit their loved ones here on earth. Spotting one in Rogers Park was a special thrill for me!
