Since our walk was through downtown Chicago, we did encounter a fair number of beggars. The only one I gave money to was the one playing the drums. At least he was offering me something I valued!
We also watched a parade of yachts that were leaving their winter homes and heading to their summer moorings. Which is to say, they were motoring down the Chicago River toward Lake Michigan. We had to wait for the bridge to go up and come back down.

Rhyme of the day:
The air was warm, the sky was sunny.
We marched for the system that runs on money.
