The Crossroads of the Aether

Carousel 01 @ Les Machines de L'ile ~ Nantes, France

This carousel is a SteamPunk's dream. Many of the "horses" are articulated by the riders. They just opened a huge new carousel of sea creatures that I did not go into - maybe someday . . .

The grownup-sized one opened a few weeks ago.  It has two levels of entry: riding, and observing while others ride.  I hope to have an opportunity to bring back pictures of that one some day.  Here is a link:  http://www.lesmachines-nantes.fr/en/machines-de-l-ile/le-carrousel-... ~ click on the slide show . . .

How ridiculously awesome. I wish they had a grown-up sized one. It seems quite unfair that the more experientially gifted amongst us should be denied such a delight, don't you think?
