Thanks for the ride

A recent visitor sent us a note to express thanks to a couple of perfect strangers on the Lakewalk.

Joan DeClerck of Moline, Ill., said she and her friend were strolling the Lakewalk when they decided it would be fun to take a carriage ride. They didn’t know where to go to catch it, so they had a chat with a young couple who told them where the carriages park.

Well, these Illinois visitors must have taken their time getting to the carriage because by the time they got there, lo and behold, that same young couple had paid for their ride.

“I want to commend this young couple for their hospitality in your beautiful city,” DeClerck wrote, and we commend them too.
