These pictures of the kids on the rides bring back many memories of when I was a child, and my parents taking us on the boardwalk to ride the carousel. I remember stepping on the carousel after it came to a stop and running to find the perfect horse. One that was colorful and went up and down while sitting on it. As the carousel turned, I always had my mom in my sight as it made a complete circle, going past her once again.
Well, those same rides are still on the boardwalk. The carousel is still running and the little boats that you could sit in, each attached by a metal bar, circling in the water are also still there. There are bumper cars and a shooting gallery. And of course they've added more things and updated the place too. But it is still called Trimper Rides.
I know that a few of my readers are from Maryland and would be familiar with those rides and the boardwalk in Ocean City. And if you are, you will surely remember the Thrasher's French Fries and Fisher's Caramel Popcorn. Those are two of the most important things to eat when visiting there. Everyone in my family still makes at least one trip back to the "ocean" every summer. And we say, "we're going to the oshun hun". It's a Baltimore twang! But if you live here, you know how to speak it!
