When Melissa and I drove home from Oregon, we began by traveling west to Canon Beach on the coast. From there, we took a quick run out of our way, heading north to Seaside. The reason? Carousel cats!
Look at this handsome creature:
He’s been using his fierce claws to catch a fish.
And his companion has had good luck fishing as well.
No cats will be going hungry on their watch.
Not only did this carousel feature cats. It also offered bunnies and pigs…
… and a very sincere young bear.
Of course we went for a ride, with me perched side-saddle on the black cat and Melissa astride the white.
Closer to home, my favorite carousel is at the San Francisco Zoo. I generally need to take several rides so I can visit with all my favorite animals.
P.S. This may not seem like a knitting-related post, but trust meâ€”I have plans for these beasties.
