It’s been a while since my last adventure, but boy am I looking forward to this one. I’m here visiting my friends in Winnetka, Illinois, which is just outside of Chicago. Mimi use to nanny for the three kids who live there now… they are still close friends, and they were nice enough to invite both of us out for a visit! Here are some of the things I did the first couple days.
I took this picture of Mimi and my new friends - Mayree and Carter.
They took me to see The Bean!

This is the new glass ledge on the Sears Tower, where you can walk out, and look allllll the way down.
We said our goodbyes to Benny this morning, and headed back into Oregon, to visit my Mommy’s Uncle Rich in Eugene. We spent one night there to break up the driving time, and then headed back on down to the cabin.
Uncle Rich's house was really neat.
A really pretty railroad to near Uncle RIch's house.
I had to make a pit stop on the way back to the cabin.
My Mommy says always use a seat cover.
Sampled a few cherries in Grass Valley. Almost back to the lake!
We arrived at the cabin around 6pm... went straight to bed. I was so tired from all of my adventures, but wanted to catch up on my latest read.
Just can’t wait to get on the road again. Goin’ places that I’ve never been. Seein’ things that I may never see againAnd I can’t wait to get on the road again. On the road again – Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway We’re the best of friends. Insisting that the world keep turning our wayAnd our way is on the road again. Just can’t wait to get on the road again. The life I love is makin’ music with my friends And I can’t wait to get on the road again”.
– Willie Nelson
So here I go, on the road again. After two nights at Nanna’s, we packed up and headed North up the coast to visit my Mommy’s brother, Benny in Seattle.
When we arrived in Seattle, Ben took us to the Ballard Locks.
These locks move boats from Puget Sound to the water level of the lakes, and vice versa.
At the locks, there was a fish ladder, which allows salmon to pass between fresh water and salt water.
After the locks, we went to a fish bar in Ballard called Rays.
