some more shopping and window display looking walk to Watertower Place and go thru some stores there and look at the displays. From there
we can walk back to the train station and enjoy all the lights and sounds and people watching.

I’m going to get on the 2:25pm train in palatine (downtown 3:23) you can board the train where ever it’s convenient for you, I’m sure some of you
will already be on the train when it gets to Palatine so I’ll look and listen for the roughly group. We wouldn’t all walk, look and shop at the same
pace so invite your friends to come and form a group on the train that your going to stick with through this fun day.
Note: the return trains run every 2 hours from Ogilvie Station 6:30 ( 6:30 – 8:30 – 10:30 – 12:30 ) if you had to much Glugg and miss the 12:30 train enjoy your night in Chicago, hope you stay at a nice hotel.
