I have a serious thing for carousels; I think they have (at least the vintage ones) the perfect combo of romantic and whimsy. Adam took me to the Port Dalousie carousel when we first started dating, and I super loved it, but we’ve never managed to get back there.
Last week we made it out, and for the hot price of 10 cents (just a nickle each!), we took a ride. The only bummer about the carousel (built between 1898 & 1905, and arriving in Canada in 1921), is that is it housed in a really unfortunate looking brick building to protect it from the elements. Otherwise, it is so great!
Details: More information about the carousel (officially called the Lakeside Park Carousel) can be found here. There’s a pretty lovely beach right next to the carousel, would be so worth making a day of it!
