About 20 minutes north of Glenview, Illinois are the Skokie Lagoons.
This outdoor nature preserve has over 900 Acres of woodlands, wetlands, and hiking trails.
My friends and I love to spend the day in the lagoons fishing and kayaking. The last time we went to the Skokie Lagoons, I found a nice spot for my girlfriend and I to have a picnic. We left the apartment in Glenview early on Saturday morning and drove directly out to the nature preserve. I found a place to park the car and we hiked about a half-mile out to the edge of the Lagoon. I got out the picnic basket and a blanket and we found a comfortable spot to sit. As soon as we started eating lunch, my roommate called with bad news. He was still at the apartment in Glenview and we were having major problems with the AC. I told my roommate to call the building manager, but he didn’t have the phone number. I looked through my contacts and I found the number for the manager. I texted my roommate the telephone number. I was nervous about the problem with the AC, so my girlfriend and I decided to head back home. We were about a mile or two away from the apartment when my roommate called with an update on the AC. The building manager was unable to reach the maintenance department, so she was contacting a local repair service to handle the issue. My girlfriend and I still went back to the apartment. The AC repair service didn’t arrive until several hours later.
