Come Ride with Me!!

Historic Smithville has a beautiful Carousel!!
It was not in operation as we passed on Saturday.
I picked one of the animals and imagined myself riding.
 

 This is the horse I picked for my imaginary ride...




but when I saw the bunny, I changed my mind.
Kids do that all the time, right? (smile) !
 
Given the opportunity, which of these beauties would you pick to ride?

  3. The carousel animals are beautifully done. I'm afraid I wouldn't pick any to ride on, the motion makes me dizzy and nauseated :(

    I have a difficult week, Debbie. Come to the hospital, Salamanca, we operate Paco hernia. I'll be back next week;)
    A hug.

  5. I love those old carousels with the calliope music. I went on the one in Ocean City all the time. You could catch rings on that one. My grandies enjoy the one at the Phila. Zoo. The ones here are so beautiful.

  7. I think the elephant looks like he's having so much fun! I'd have to pick him! Her?! Looks like you had quite the visit over the weekend - all those amazing shops yesterday just killed me...I need a touristy fix of some quaint village. Fast!

  9. It would be difficult to choose - but I think I would choose the first pony - such beautiful colours to take me to a fantasy world

  10. I like that first horse - but all of them are gorgeous - I don't think I have ever seen a merry-go-round with such beautiful old animals...
    I looked at your next post too - lots of greenery coming up... I love the photo of the two of you in the restaurant, and all the forsythia there!!

  20. Hi Debbie - How did I miss this post? I don't think I've ever seen a prettier Carousel! I used to ride one during our local "Fair" as a kid. I was horse crazy. If I were to pick one for my ride on this carousel, it would be the one in the fourth photo down, with the feathers in his bridle. GORGEOUS!!

    Happy day to you!

  22. You kind of snuk this post in somehow, I too missed it.
    Love those carousel rides. You chose good!
    My horse would be the one in the 4th photo - we had imaginary horses (from our stick ones) and mine was always white with a white mane :D)
