Montrose Harbor with high winds and waves

I heard we were having high winds and waves in Chicago over Lake Michigan, so on my way downtown I decided to stop at Montrose Harbor to see if I could find anything interesting.  BTW, there were a few times I was holding on to trees and polls while taking these pictures because the winds were strong enough to knock me down.  I really was only out for about 10 - 15 minutes.

Song of Long Ago - Gillson Beach

After being so sick I had a strong desire to just spend some tie near the lake.  For me being near nature is extremely healing, and that was exactly what I needed, even if it was only for a few minutes.
