We are lucky to have wonderful friends and family members in the Chicago area. The closest relative is The World's Best Bleeding Heart Attorney's brother, Opera Man. He and his spouse, (with whom he becomes "pair-o-docs") live in a lake view condo. We saw them briefly while we were there, but they had other weekend plans far away...so they let us have the condo. Gorgeous lake sunrises, beautiful afternoon views, it was all ours for the asking. Below are morning and afternoon shots through the window.
We love them and thank them for their generosity.
