Carousels bring out the child in most of us.
The following ride would be good for anyone too "chicken" to ride a pony!
They are an enchanting way to spend some memory-making time on a lovely afternoon.
When my sibs and I were kids, our parents used to take us to ride a carousel that overlooked a gorgeous lake.
It was always thrilling.
My heart used to beat fast in anticipation of going and even faster when the ride began.
In Cooperstown, riding the carousel, all these decades later, was just as thrilling.
The wind whipped through my hair, the music filled the air and I felt like a little kid again.
I think carousels, or merry-go-rounds as they are often called, need to be housed in their own buildings.
If situated in a park or history museum, like the one in Cooperstown, it's a perfect fit.
The gift shop on the grounds had a book detailing the history of the Empire State Carousel.
I would have loved to buy it but at $29, it was way too expensive for my budget.
Looked good, though.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL MEMORIES OF RIDING A CAROUSEL?
