IF - Polar
Hi everyone, we are back from the beautiful city of Chicago. While Pickledog, and I were visiting the Shedd Aquarium we saw a strange site. A polar bear swimming with the little tropical fishes. I'm not sure who was more surprised, the fish or us. Fortunately, Pickledog speaks fluent Polar Bear, (which he learned during his summer job as a sled dog in Nunavut several years ago.) The polar bear explained that he had always wanted to see tropical fish, so he had hitched a ride with an ice cream van from Manitoba to Chicago. We decided it would be fun to see the city sites together for the afternoon. We saw the Sears Tower, Navy Pier, the Field museum, and the Art Institute. In the evening the polar bear climbed aboard the ice cream van, and we waved “good bye.” Afterwards Pickledog and I both agreed that the polar bear was one of the nicest animals we have ever traveled with. Thank you Chicago for being such a great city!
