Sunday on the Blog with Photos!

(Carriage detail from Santa Cruz Boardwalk carousel)
"Spirit of place! It is for this we travel, to surprise its subtlety; and where it is a strong and dominant angel, that place, seen once, abides entire in the memory with all its own accidents, its habits, its breath, its name". - Alice Maynell

Vintage parks are places that have woven within their fibers memories sweet and tragic, their own vital breath, and names that make us recollect childhood wonder.

That's why I'm now venturing forth to park #34 in just a few weeks' time. And all on my own nickel. Because "spirit of place" is certainly real and true and palpable, deserving of our respect.
