Off in the distance you can see the Casco Bay Eye. My eye! It's just a ferris wheel situated along the water for last weekend's festivities. I must say though, it must have offered quite a view of the waterfront. It one of those fold-up contraptions offered by Smokey's Greater Shows, a carnival outfit out of Fryeburg. Name a fair or summer festival in this state and their carnival rides will be ding-donging in the distance. Oh yeah, and sorry about the stupid 'love locks' in the foreground. I did notice that the locks are beginning to creep their way to the other side of the chain-link fence though. Besides being in love, you better have a bit of the daredevil in you. You see, there's about a 12 foot drop to the water and rocks below.
I have no plans to add my YALE lock to this fiasco.
Others I know might like to try.
Love ferris wheels.
Wasting a MASTER lock?
Not so much.
"Love is Strange"(1956) by Mickey and Sylvia comes to mind.
