Fishin’ Hole

(Chicago, Illinois) After Mass and an informative Oblate meeting Sunday at the Monastery of the Holy Cross at 31st and Aberdeen, I had a Middle Eastern feast at Zaytune Mediterranean Grill at 31st Place and Morgan and then walked it off by exploring Henry C. Palmisano Nature Park at 2700 S. Halsted Street.  For those who have not had the pleasure of prowling this incredible 27-acre site in the heart of Chicago, please know that Palmisano Park, formerly known as Sterns Quarry, now includes a fishing pond, interpretive wetlands, preserved quarry walls, trails,  a running track, and a hill that offers a dramatic view of downtown Chicago.  You have to hike it to believe it, and I hope to see you there some second Sunday soon.  Now sit back and enjoy my Sunday snaps, before the blizzard, of Palmisano Park:

  1. I love that 3rd image with the city skyline. I like the sound of your Middle Eastern feast. Just last week He-Man and I had dinner at our favorite middle eastern place. I always get the Chicken Sharwarma plate, but omit the rice and get extra salad instead. The plate is served with a huge scoop of hummus with evoo in the center, and a dash of cumin sprinkled on it, and warm pita bread. I love their hot sauce and temper it with the tahini sauce. It is a feast! I always leave stuffed.
