Salem Willows 2011

We took cousin David for our annual visit to the Salem Willows. We started with the monkeys of course!

 

 

I feel like we’ve been here before.  Ah yes, 2007 and 2005.

Then onto the Mutoscopes — sort of a mechanical flip book.  Look at the title on Leo’s machine!

(I just read that the titles often implied that the “shows” were racier than they really were.  As in this YouTube video.)

On the cool Hampton car ride, the very fast carousel, and the boats.

Then we took a break for Hobbs’ ice cream and some tide pooling, where many crabs were caught.

Then a walk down the pier.  I completely fell in love with these boys!

Finally, we went home with the world’s best popcorn (still to be found all over my car).
