#47 – Ride the Port Dalhousie carousel

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!
