"That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air… Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer."

- Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose (via juliettetang)

Let’s all celebrate the fact that Seaside’s historic carousel survived Thursday’s fire! This is a huge piece of my childhood and I am so glad it made it.

No it didnt they said the poor carousel burned…

There were two. One survived- the antique one. The one that burned was a monstrosity, anyway.

Reposting this entry from last year with an update. The town now wants to auction the carousel off:
