    Love the old-school playground equipment. On Corfu two summers ago we came across a playground with all of the old metal equipment, the kind that leaves that lingering metallic smell of oxidation on your hands. That smell triggers some deep olfactory memory for me.

    This was always my favorite at the rocket slide park. I liked it because it didn’t involve heights like the slides, and I didn’t have to find someone to push the thing or sit on the other side of it (see-saw) to go for a ride.

    1. Yes, there’s something to be said for a structure at the park that can be played on alone. πŸ™‚ I have an only child, so I can appreciate that!
