Good Times, Special People, the Beach in the Summer

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker 475.140531

My baby (he is 52) brother is visiting with his wife and kids. Today I interrupted work and took a 90 minute walk. I ignored my phone that was ringing non stop and we walked and talked. It was so nice out and they had a great time. It was too good to work, at least for that hour and a half time frame. 

They really loved it as he lives on NYC and his kids wanted to put their feet into the water. I shot this one minute video of the Evanston Lakefront Beach looking North with the Northwestern campus in front of us. When I zoom in you can really see it.

Be Kick Back Jack with me for a minute, watch this video and let go, forget about pressing issues for a moment.

Hi Noah - Having accessible beaches and great places to walk are such a bonus for a large city, and you were smart to take some time off to share them with your brother and his family.

Noah, it reminds me of what I have been missing by not going to beaches on the coast lately. We used to go every summer when my daughter was younger. Great to see you spend quality time with family.

I love the sound of the waves. It looks like the water must be cold as I don't see anyone going in deeper then their ankles. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

Nothing like a walk on the beach - whether it's in Chicago or Miami - that sand and the sound of the waves is what it's all about!
