Charles, Joyce, Casidy and Charlie ride in one of two sleds on the carousel.
How a Carousel works. Many people call therm Merry - go-Round.
Casidy on horse. Notice the mirrors on the inner portion of the carousel as well as the wonderful paintings. Music is playing while the carousel is in motion.
This little girl kept leaning to the left and her father had to keep pulling her back straight so she would not
This lion is Casidy's favorite and is the only non horse animal on the carousel.
Many of the saddles have an extra decoration such as this. These are owl's eyes.
Baby Charlie loved the ride also.
I think Grandpa Charles loved the carousel ride as much as the children.
They rode four times if I counted right. I was busy taking photos. The horses are magnificent in their poses, coloring and decorations. It is wonderful that Nassau County stepped in and saved this magnificent carousel from being lost forever. It is believed there are only about 150 of these carousels left. There are many merry go rounds but few of these special carousels. I am pleased I got to see it.
Tomorrow, the Lord willing I start very early heading back to Ohio. Just a side note Black Beauty performed excellent on her venture out onto the open rode for the first time. My thanks to all the members of my family who made this such an enjoyable time.
Remember what I always say. God Loves you and so do I.
Great Grandpa Bill
