Last-minute hits: the Windy City » Walking along the lake beaches.

It’s been bitterly cold this winter, so we haven’t been able to appreciate the shoreline – even though we live close to the water. A couple of times I tried to walk by the lake, but my takeaway coffee chilled quickly in my hands and the wind cut through my wool coat. It started to feel like spring this week because we could actually walk out on the pier without suffering too much.
