Marriage, Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday — A Stroll Through Playland


The fountain at the entrance to Playland in Rye, NY.



It was too hot even for the beach to be jammed. And yes, this is the boardwalk where the movie “Big” was filmed. Inside the park now is a Zoltar the Fortune Teller machine.





Basil is always a good sport. I think this look suits him.



Long Island Sound — fenced in.



Playland Lake where many years ago we rented a paddle boat. On Sunday we simply sat in the shade and enjoyed the view.



The iconic Dragon coaster — built in 1929, it’s one of only 100 wooden roller coasters left in the U.S.



It only took us about 20 minutes to get this selfie in one of the original Dragon coaster cars — and just as long to get in and out of the darn thing. It’s a tight squeeze!

  2. What a great day out. It feels like it was a bit of a trip down memory lane for the two of you as well. I often enjoy these places much more when there’s no one else around. All the best, Bonny

  4. Awww looks so much fun! I have to admit that we are going to have a hard time to squeeze in there too as me and hubby gained a lot of weight since we got married =P #ww

  5. Glad to see you DO get out without the kid to do fun things. (Especially things she would like to do!)

  6. Oh cute. Glad you two are enjoying your time together with Catherine away now. It kind of reminds me of one of those Cialis commercials.
