Wong Family @ the 100-Year old Carousel

Whoa! This is faster than I thought. I vaguely remembered this 1912 carousel was pretty fun when we visited Burnaby Museum for Christmas years ago. A tad fast compared to the regular country fair merry-go-rounds. But a thrill nonetheless. Well we’re here with the Wong family. We arrived at the C.W. Parker Carousel just a few minutes before closing. The conductor was kind enough to let us hop on. He even invited me to get on for some carousel action photography. What that’s such a nice man. Did I detect an evil smile? Too late, it’s moving.

Unlike last time where I could go “Whee!!!” with my 5 year old, this time I was trying to stabilize myself with camera gear as Mr. Conductor turned up the juice. Whirl! Whirl! Whirl! Time to bring out the Kung-Fu Panda stance!

“Faster! Faster!” the two Wong boys gleefully screamed!

Soon everything became big blur… Buffeted by the gold wrapped posts and colourful wooden horses, I felt like a spinning pinata.
