As a child I always loved carousel rides. I still do. I ride one every chance I get. I know it's slow and it just goes around in a circle, but for some reason I feel so free on them.
I remember when the Polk County Fair would come to town in Minnesota and we would go with my family. It's the first ride I remember ever taking. I thought I was flying. Even then I would lean back and feel the air on my face. I still do.
This carousel is at California Adventure in Anaheim...King Triton's Carousel to be exact. The animals were from the sea and very colorful. I spotted a bright purple seahorse (I've always found them fascinating.) that I wanted to ride on But some little kid beat me to it. I probably could have taken him, (he was only about three years old) but his father was pretty big, so I let him have it. I settled for a sea lion.
Sometimes you just have to feel like a kid. Does anyone else still like to ride the carousel?
