Circle Game


We had a fabulous day at Hershey Park. 
Can you tell that the Philadelphia Toboggan Company #47 classic from 1919 has me spell bound as soon as we enter the park?   You can really appreciate the artistry that went into this ride. And to sound old
 fashioned, they just don't make 'em like they used to. 













Zoe has tamed her wild steed.


And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Wonderful photos! Maizie, Brian and I were just there with friends in early September. Of course, we had to choose our horses carefully! I think ours favorites are in some of your pictures. Carousel and Sky View are the best rides in the park and we rode them all that day.
