Steam Fair Final Chapter

Hi folks,

well to conclude this series, the park was beginning to fill up.

This merry go round had smoke coming out of the centre chimney as it went faster and the people swung out.

I thought this ride was for children but this couple where having the time of their lives.

In the centre was the organ with its lovely decorations.

Around the back you can see the Steam engine partly covered by the swing door decoration.

This one was fun, it tipped from side to side and it revolved, the blue building on the side housed the steam engine. you can just about see the smoke coming out of the chimney.

The big wheel was now loading,

and the man was stoking yet another engine

This went swinging back and forth, I think the little boy was wanting a ride

Well that Peacock certainly got about or was it a different one?

all in all a fantastic place with many more rides, well worth a visit as once you paid you could ride "free" all day

Thanks for dropping by.

nite nite, luv Mike XXX
