Carousel at Night



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

On Tuesday evening while we were at the beach, we stopped by Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, after dinner. Barefoot Landing is a shopping-restaurant-entertainment complex. Most of the shops were closed, which was fine since we stopped by to see the lights. Walking around the complex we found this brightly-lit deserted carousel, and I couldn't resist taking a picture.

How could you resist riding on it? We have one in downtown Chattanooga that is operational most of the year. Your picture is gorgeous.

Well, I thought my post had pretty lights today, but you've outdone me! I had to click on this one and see all the pretty detail.

The lights are lovely, George. To me, white lights seem so elegant.

I love carousels! There's one in Wildwood, NJ that's been there forever. It's one of the antique, large ones. How that brings back memories!

Best wishes for you and yours to 2011!

I would like to some day visit this place. I have heard so much about it. Based on the lovely sights you share, it has to be a nice place to visit.

In December, the North East Monsoon blows and bring in a lot of rain.

The first tree we had was a fake tree and didn't have many leaves and branches. Dad was a civil servant and didn't have a lot of money. He bought about six baubles and we were the only house in the neighborhood with a tree.

It was about 4 pm when the wind blew, and mum rushed to close the window and at the same time telling us to do it. We rushed to the lounge just in time to see the tree fall. Some of the baubles broke into smithereens some were less broken. Mum was in tears. We tried to savage them, but mum said no, we were too proud to use broken baubles.

When I went to Canada years later, my Canadian friend strung popcorn to hang on the tree. I came home and told Mum we could do this cheaply. Mum said it won't work. In Borneo, the ants would come.
