West Marine

Okay so we got early and John has been choppin at the bit ever since he lost his radar.  So todays challenge is to  get a new radar system and AIS.  John got both at West Marine.  Now to get there we called a cab and they never came so a gentleman driving for Ubber did a drop off at the marina and John asked kindly if he could take us.  He did plus gave us a little tour of Chicago along with a little history.  Nice man came here from Turkey.

John found e verything he needed and then we were coming back to the marina and he asked if West Marine would do free shipping back to the marina with us as stowaways.  No deal but the salesman put out a call in West Marine store to see if anyone was going our way along with our packages.   Guess what we found someone going to our exact marina.  Go figure.DSC03286.JPG

After getting a ride with this unknown gentleman he gave us a quick tour as well of the city and was kind enough to stop at Buckingham Fountain which I have been trying to see since we got here.  He pulled over and said I could go and take as many pictures as I wanted and he would wait for me.


Now at nite this is all different colors and more impressive but I will take my daytime photo’s.





My next post will be leaving the marina.  The gentleman that drove us also has a boat at the Marina just beautiful.
