What in the world?!

Before I begin this next blog post, I want to thank you all for your warm embrace of little May-bee. He’s very excited about all the possibilities life ahead. I had to rein him in a tad since it will be several more days (and several more after that) before we will know exactly where he’ll be headed. In the meantime, we had an experience I thought you might like to share in – virtually – of course.

What in the world is this thing?


We were downtown over the weekend and right in the center of the city, was this monstrosity. It was definitely intriguing.


Perhaps you have seen one of these types of mazes before, but it was all new to us. We were curious. Curious enough to go inside and see if we could learn what it was all about.







The sun was shining brightly outside and that made exploring the interior all that much more exciting.


It is a luminarium called Amococo. And it truly is an experience in light and color.


I have to add it was also an experience in heat because even though it was air conditioned, it was still very warm inside.


It was very much like a maze. It had tunnels and domes. In fact, it had 10,000 square feet of tunnels and domes.


It was unlike anything else I have ever done. Not thrilling like a roller coaster ride, but thrilling nonetheless.


If you haven’t explored one of these before and you have an opportunity to do so, my advice is to go for it!  You won’t be disappointed.


  1. Hi Ginger,

    That is amazing. The colors are beautiful. I have never seen anything like that before. Thank you for sharing.

    Give Sebastian & May-bee a big hug.


  2. Ginger, that is SOOOOO cool!!! I'm going to keep my eyes open to find one of those!!! Thanks for sharing it.


  3. I would never get back out - lol
    I'm glad you enjoyed the fun

  4. @ The Bear's Blog - I agree. The colors were amazing. I thought at first, surely they wouldn't be so intense and so varied. I was happily surprised.

    @ Cheryl - Yes, Cheryl, I think you and your family would definitely enjoy one of these. Especially your girls - they seem like the fun-loving, exploring, discovery type of young people.

    @ Patty C. - Ah, Patty. I don't think they would let you get lost! If I can manage it, I think anyone could! ha ha!

  5. Oh that looks so cool! Alas we never get fun stuff like that here - it would either drown or get blown away lol

  6. @ Katy - Funny thing. This was made in the UK!

  7. At first, this looks like a giant blue hen sitting on her huge collection of eggs. Very beautiful! And, I'm certain, an enriching experience.
