So as you can imagine,, I really like Carousels and it is just the biggest treat to be able to go watch one being  born.  My friend Ellen Anderson met me in Albany last week,, a couple hour drive for each of us.  She stayed focused and took these photos, I on the other hand had big eyes and couldn't take it all in fast enough.  These pics show how the animals are constructed and finished.  They are especially amazing as they have many surprises when you take the time to look at them close.  Other animals are along for the ride..so to speak.  Our plan is to meet there at least once a month where the volunteers will help us learn to paint and carve animals for the Carousel.  What a treat!!
