When I think of  breathtaking, I think of  beauty – beyond stunning. Sunrises, sunsets, beautiful women, nature, cosmic events, and if you’re a fan of Seinfeld like I am, you think of  a certain Seinfeld episode.  But I digress.

So I decided to play around with the word a bit and show you a little bit of “take your breath away”.  Same thing?  I don’t know, but I’m short on beauty beyond stunning right now so…

Sometimes a little ride on a ferris wheel can take your breath away, especially if there’s a stop at the top while directly below someone exits, stage left.

Although this is one of my favorites, the log flume can be a little hair-raising, taking your breath away and soaking you to the bone. Yahoooooooo!

If you look closely to the right on the platform, you’ll see a few flip flops that either got left behind or came flying off.  I don’t know whichThis is one of my step-son’s favorite rides.  Maybe because it takes his breath away 🙂 .

I don’t know about you, but these spinning things are not my cup of tea.  I’ll take a breathtaking ride on the biggest, baddest roller coaster out there before I get caught on one of these babies!

And finally,  I haven’t yet made this a point of interest in my blogging but I love, Love, LOVE my car.  It’s a black 2003 VW convertible beetle.  So, now that you know this tidbit of information, you’ll know why I am posting a photo of this vehicle which we found parked INSIDE a yogurt shop.  This, to me, is BREATHTAKING!

  1. A post that is fun, thrilling and “breathtaking!” The last time I rode the Ferris Wheel, I was breathless every time it stops just like when you wrote, “Sometimes a little ride on a ferris wheel can take your breath away, especially if there’s a stop at the top .” Then my son would be moving back and forth which I swear made my heart bound from nervousness. Then last month, we went to Pleasure Pier and we rode the Rock N’ Rollin. Oh, wow, I got nauseaus and dizzy. But I would ride them again for my son. He really loves these rides and what makes him happy , makes me happy. Thanks for sharing a truly “breathtaking” post. Best wishes to you and your family.

    • Sounds lie you’ve had some fun with these ropes of places. Anything for our children, huh? What we wouldn’t do to put a smile of their faces. Thanks for putting the challenge out there. 🙂

  3. Love Ocean City, MD. Been there many times! Unfortunately, the gulf coast does not have comparable boardwalk. However, the beaches are nicer and the water a lot warmer. Have a great day!

    • Never been to OC, MD but hope to some day. You should give OC, NJ a shot. With these incredible heat spells, we are even starting to have some warm waters, sooner than expected. Phew! HOT!
      Keep cool and thanks for the visit, David. Love your photos!
