Starting on a hilltop in Lincoln park with a commanding view of the city, Luna, a stunning bernese mountain dog, took a deep breath in and gathered her energy for a tour around some of Chicago’s most beautiful landmarks…..
She was the self-appointed guide on an ambitious fall walking tour around the city…..what a beautiful day it was!
Her owners wanted to remember all the beautiful spots in Chicago they love as they say goodbye to the city for a move to Florida. Luna had a lot of ground to cover so before really getting too serious she layed down for a quick belly rub…..
then got back up in front of Cafe Brauer and plotted the course for the day…..
First stop was the bridge near the Lincoln Park Zoo with the great panoramic of the Chicago Skyline….the spot where every bride wants to be photographed. We went to the backside so we wouldn’t get all of the wedding parties in the photographs….
Next Luna choose a hilltop where you could see the fall colors starting to change in all of their glory. She choose this spot because she knew how good she would look in the light…
Onward to a great row of trees and a promenade that makes you feel instantly nostalic….as if you are walking down a promenade that you have seen in an old photograph of Paris…
Luna kept us moving and was constantly urging us to walk faster through the tour…the light was falling and we still had places to go….
….Like a statue in Lincoln Park which was the site of her owners engagment.
It was time for a rest and a chance to take in the beautiful colors of Lincoln Park…
After some down time taking in the incredible fall night we were having, Luna was up again and walking us to the North Avenue beach…it was the perfect time of evening and the lights of the city started to creep up….
I don’t thing there is a person or dog who can tire of looking at Chicago from a slight distance….
However, I am sure Luna will find lots to love in Florida. Good bye Luna! Chicago will miss you!
