The Honfleur Carousel
By the entrance to the little marina in Honfleur, France is this beautiful, double decker carousel. I haven't found much information online about it, other than it's open during the tourist season and possibly built around 1900. It wasn't crowded the day we stopped by and no one went to the second level, but the teenagers in our group regressed a few years as they enjoyed it. In a way the carousel symbolizes Honfleur, because though it may be old, it is colorful, happy and on the move. Honfleur bustles with activity as tourists walk, shop, eat and just enjoy the beauty of this town.
Playtime in the Pool
The last time I went to the zoo, I only had an hour before it would get dark. There were only a few large animals that were moving about, including the cheetah and the elephants, but not in the same enclosure of course. They don't play well together. But these two young elephants were doing just that, playing. We were watching the big guy eat, when the two "kids" came running from behind somewhere. They ran up to the large elephant and stopped as if to ask if they could go swimming, then on cue, they both turned and ran straight for the water. They played for some time as it grew darker outside and we were forced to leave, since the zoo was closing. It was worth the trip just to watch the kids play in the pool.

A while back I gave you a taste of this T-6 Texan, but I thought you deserved to see the entire plane. It’s just that nice. Like a card player doesn’t show his entire hand all at once, I only showed you a piece of it last time. Once a month at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum, they have a fly-in, so you never know exactly who will show up. Since it faces east, it gets the morning light, which sets it apart nicely from the early sky.
