2007 Baseball Trip - Sunday July 1 - Wrigley Field

We stayed at a Hampton Inn in Batesville, Indiana about 45 minutes away from Cincinnati.  We left about 7:45 Am to travel across the state to Chicago for the last game of the tour.  We arrived at Wrigley Field about 11:30 in time for lunch before the game.  The Cubs beat the Milwuakee Brewers 5-1.

 The area around Wrigley Field was so crowded that we had to walk several blocks to get back to our bus.  We arrived at the Exel Inn about 6 PM.  We decided to stay overnight there and fly back to New York on Monday..

 

We certainly enjoyed the trip.  The only disappointment was a rainout in Detroit after having to wake up at 3 AM.  The home team won all 5 games.  I enjoyed the day in Pittsburgh the best since we were able to do some site seeing.  Vacations just go by too fast.

Bruce, Karen and Lee:  We really enjoyed viewing your photos! Thanks for that.  And your blog will be invaluable to Dave. . .he was responsible for keeping a Journal of our trip.  Unfortunately, he was not very diligent in that pursuit! So he'll be able to jog his own memory as he reads your blog!  Each night in the motel I would ask: "Did you write in the Journal?"  His reply usually was in the negative! We had a great time on the trip. It was much better than I had anticipated.  Although I have lived in the midwest since 1963 (the year we were married and Dave's final year at Seminary in St.Paul), I still feel close ties to NJ and NY, so it was especially nice for me to have your family on the trip!  Dave is already talking about next year's trip!  What have I gotten myself into?  Can someone save me from this sports fan?
Bye for now. . .Louise
