This is my grandson, Sean taking his first ride on the104 year old Looff Carousel. It was placed in service in August 1911 at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. It is really beautiful. I remember riding this when I a child and it is so amazing to have my grandchildren still riding on these horses.
It was a beautiful day to take a walk along the boardwalk and enjoy all the smells I remember as a child. Candy, popcorn, hot dogs, peanuts, cotton candy and all the new foods. It ever in the Monterey Bay area stop by and see the Santa Cruz amusement--it's free.
