Sailing Away at Gillson Beach (Willmette, IL)

I went wandering around at Gillson Park. I was shocked to see so many people there. Not only on the beach but in the water too. Thought I saw a few traffic jams with sailboats.

We've been having a heat wave in Chicago. The weather was perfect. After a meeting I decided to take a stroll through Lincoln Park Zoo before heading home.

The Beach

It was a beautiful day in October and decided to go hang out on one of the beaches. This is what I saw during my hour there.  While I was sitting there a seagull flew over towards me, sat down and started talking to me.  I only caught the last few seconds on film, which you can see on the second clip posted below.

One of my photographs made it to the news.  It was on the 10 PM broadcast of NBC news in Chicago on October 3, 2011.  The photograph was also published in the Chicago Sun Times on page 20 on Tuesday, October 4, 2011.
