Christmas on the Port of Monaco - the Carousel


Back to Port Hercule in Monaco for the Christmas Fair, which this year has some great displays - in particular, many beautiful and different nativity scenes from around the world.

If you want to have fun, you can go way up on the Big Wheel, you can ice skate on the covered swimming pool, ride a donkey, buy all sorts of wonderful goodies and eat yourself silly.

Today though, to get us in the mood for the fair - a beautiful carousel. It would seem to be an old carousel, beautifully restored but perhaps I'm dreaming and it's brand new?

Tomorrow, let's have a glass of mulled wine...

Jilly - a superb photo of what is actually a very hard subject to photograph successfully (I have tried!)

Wonderful carousel shot. I collect carousel horses. I don't have a big one like these though.

When young the carousels are one's favorite always!! Days of sun sand and surf and candied apples!! Always the charm of life at that age!
