A few weeks ago I was downtown and Kevin and I went to the Shedd Aquarium. During the summer, they are open each Wednesday night and have live jazz played inside and out. There’s cash bars and fireworks.
It was VERY crowded; we walked outside early and saw it was packed. We decided not to fight for a spot and just enjoy the exhibits. Plus we have a membership so can/will go back and make sure we go out on their patio!
An early on highlight was a small girl ran over and was so interested by my rollator, touching the front basket and seat handle. The mom was embarrassed but I totally didn’t mind and told her that. Actually I loved it; everything about my disability doesn’t have to be serious!
Other highlights were seeing a rockhopper penguin hop across the exhibit, spending time watching the dolphins and sitting by the Caribbean Reef listening to jazz. And we took a break by the empty otter tank; when we stood up to leave one came out, made one loop then went away.
It was such a fun night out!
