So, what’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys? How about a visit to the newly restored Carousel at Tilden Park in Berkeley?! The photos speak volumes but in addition to riding the Carousel that afternoon, we enjoyed eating ice cream, munching on popcorn and simply relaxing in the plentiful sunshine. For anyone who has never been to Tilden Park, it might suffice to say that it is truly one of the “wonders of the world” with its lakes, little farm, and hiking trails. The scent of eucalyptus is ubiquitous and from every angle, there’s a postcard impression of the sights and sounds!
