Tilt-A-Whirl

What could be more fun than riding in a sparkly green and gold contraption and getting whirled around and up and down at high speed until you're hoarse from screaming and seriously in danger of losing your belly-full of cotton candy, french fries and pop? These absolutely senseless midway rides were immensely popular long ago when I was a kid and, judging by the long line-ups at the Oak Bay Tea Party yesterday, they still are.

Ohmigod Ben! That is a FANTASTIC photo!!

We were thinking of checking out the festivities yesterday, but we got bogged down with errands and bbqs instead. Too bad!

Thanks for your kind comment, Jabba, but don't despair over missing the Oak Bay midway - Closer to home we have the Esquimalt Buccaneer Days coming up this weekend (June 12-14) and there is a carnival midway attached to it, too.
