|Carousel - Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper - 8X10|
One of the sweetest memories of growing up in Detroit was piling into my dad's car on a lazy Saturday afternoon and going to Edgewater Amusement Park.
Built in 1927, Edgewater was one of the most popular destinations for blue collar Detroiters because it was so affordable. Attractions like the Wild Mouse (roller coaster) and Hall of Mirrors were favorites, but the merry-go-round won hands down - at least for me.
I feasted on the lights, the mirrors, the music, and that beautiful menagerie of every animal I loved.
And although those magical rides over the rainbow were much too short, the wonderful memories have lasted a lifetime.
