  1. I share you reluctance. I look at the Ferris Wheel in London and think – are those people out of their minds!! Virginia

    Hah. That totally brought back some memories 😉 The Christmas fair at the end of the pier.
    The strong winds walking there..then the warmth when we were inside, only to go back outside because we wanted pictures of the ferris wheel. Good times 😉

  3. That was also the day we almost found the magnificent mile? *grin*
