Minnesota State Fair: In the Midway

















No rides for me! Years ago, I loved rides, but now they make me more than a little nauseous. So each year at the Fair I make one trip through the Mighty Midway in the early evening,  just to take pictures. This year my favorite pictures were of the giant swing that twirled people high in the air. I enjoy it much more from the ground!

Up, Up, Up!


































Whee!

















Heading back to Earth!

I'm with you, Risa! I always loved the rides and then about 10 years ago, we went to a fair and I happily got on some up and down, whirly, twirly thing and then felt nauseous for the rest of the day!
