A Walk Around Campus

Liz and I had a slow, easy morning planned this Sunday. We had an early breakfast at Plein Air Cafe, and then decided to take a stroll around the University of Chicago campus.

Of course, we made a beeline for Botany pond, to check out some of the ducks there.

I was tickled to see one of two little duck ramps.

Sitting on a stone bench, we relaxed and just watched the ducks napping.

In a random fluke of perspective, Liz asked if I could see all the tiny ducklings. When I asked “where,” we both realized the table had perfectly blocked my view.

Because there was a small group of ducklings, napping outside of my sight.

A few ducks, waking up.

Several turtles, slowly sunning themselves.

It’s hard to see in this image, but there were several groups of fish hanging out in the shadow of a nearby tree. I’m going to assume they were also napping.

Spotted this above a door, and I’m not sure what to make of it. Initially I thought this might be Latin, but on closer inspection… it’s a list of last names?


A lovely little sticker I spotted, high above a nearby door.

A view of Saieh Hall, with an impossibly blue sky in the background. Seeing this made me want to trek to the very top of the tower (where I assume there are bells), to see how things work.

I’m terrified of heights, but now really want to see if I can find a way to learn about what’s at the top of this tower. And perhaps get a view of the neighborhood, from the top.
