7AM Biking on the Pier

My city condo faces Navy Pier and Lake Michigan.  I never tire of the view.  Peaceful waters, sailboats, dinner cruise ships, motorboats.  The Ferris Wheel and amusement park rides.  Crowds on the Pier, Bubba Gump's, Harry Carrey's, the Beer Garden and the Shakespeare Theater.

And in the early morning, nothing but a few walkers, joggers, cyclists and delivery trucks.  Oh, and fishermen.

Further down the Pier, restaurants, Ferris Wheel, rides, bike rentals
