But no. We crossed North and just kept going. We walked through Lincoln Park Zoo and up past all those cool high-rise condo buildings along Lakeview Avenue and Sheridan Road. (I'd kill to get a look inside one of those.)
Fortified by a couple of Vienna hot dogs, fries and drinks (a root beer for me and a Mountain Dew for my son), we felt newly energized and decided to press on. (There's very little a Vienna hot dog can't fix.)
It was actually my son's idea to continue walking, but I was thrilled. After all these years I finally have a walking buddy!
