A walk by the Lake

The moon and its reflection over Lake Michigan
All throughout college I think I took the Lake for granted.  I lived less than a half a block away from what I now deem as the greatest and most beautiful part of Chicago.  So I was lucky to have a friend invite me to come sit by the Lake on Monday night.  This again is something that I haven't done since maybe my freshman year of college, if ever.  At first I was a little freaked out because it was pitch black.  I don't recommend doing what I did (walking by yourself through the park to the Lake) especially if you're a girl.  So I was trying to meet my friends who were sitting by the Lake by the recreation center near Montrose Harbor and Golf Course.  I tried to get exact directions to where they were sitting but the problem was they didn't really know where they were.
The Moon's reflection over Lake Michigan
  So I wondered past the recreation center, in pitch black night mind you...and alone, past the golf course (where they said they were) and wound up next to a wall that I couldn't quite climb over.  I was totally confused and scared.  There were many raccoons wandering around in the bushes and literally there were no lights or people around.  Finally I decided to walk around the recreation center the other way and found where my friends were sitting.  With my heart pounding what felt like a million times per minute, it took me about 15 minutes to fully relax and realize what a gorgeous view was in front of me.  The pictures I'm sharing are pictures of the moon and its reflection over Lake Michigan.  I felt I needed to tell this story because the view was even prettier to me because I was so scared and it took me so long to get there.  I should go sit by the Lake more often...
