I haven't ridden in one of those EVER. I was afraid as a child and I feel like I still am as an adult. So that's two of us (Criz Lai) who haven't been on one yet.
It is entertaining to watch people ride it though.

I went on the London Eye and that was okay as it was closed in and very stable; i'm not sure about that one though!

Cool photo, Annie! This brings memories of a time when I wasn’t afraid of heights and enjoyed the carnival rides.
Wishing you a fun weekend! Stay cool. :)
p.s. glad to hear that you made the piña colada sherbet and that you liked it. I haven’t used my ice cream maker this summer but you have inspired me to get it out and make the sherbet with the left over pineapple (I’m using fresh fruit) from Palma’s recipe.

I used to have (still have?) fear of heights. But I remember trying to ride this twice. With screaming in both tries. =)

Beautiful shot, Annie. I am curious to know where you took this photo.
I love riding these, they are great entertainment.
Hi Candi, I took it in Durham, NC. It's a traveling carnival that comes to town every year. I loved riding these as a kid but it's been a long time since I've been on one!
You have a good weekend too.

Hi Annie, great photo for this week's theme! I used to love riding these too growing up, but was always afraid when it rocked so I made sure who ever rode with me kept really still! :)
Have a great weekend!

Oh,my stomach dropped just reading 'round and round' - I,too, used to cringe when we HAD to go to the carnival. I know, I was weird - carnivals scared me. Clowns did too. menehune

I love those traveling carnivals.Our local Youth Athletic Assoc. has one every year. As a kid, I enjoyed those rides immensely. Now,I also get queasy just looking at that height and reading the words "round & round".Still enjoy the funnel cake,though!

Mine is up, too. Have a great weekend!

That is a beautiful photo! I had a bad experience when I was little on a ferris wheel - my sister and I were stuck at the top. She thought it was lots of fun to tip the seat back and forth. I didn't. Last time I rode a ferris wheel. BUT I do love seeing them in person and am glad others enjoy riding them.
I have caught up on most of your posts I missed while I was in Italy. I even tried a couple of the salads this past week. I need to go back and read your posts again when I have more time.
