Last night, a group of us went ice skating at the new Canal Park Ice Rink. It was pretty awesome, in that it was outdoors, its brand new (and therefore we basically had the rink to ourselves) and formed in a figure 8 with a large open center and then two tracks that loop a water fountain. It was awesome to break out my skates again. They look so pretty. Though I can barely do any of the tricks I learned during my figure skating lessons I took throughout Jr High, it’s still a blast to get out there. I even competed in the backwards skate off around one of the loops and managed to come out on top of the pack within a few seconds. The restaurant attached is set to open in two weeks. I’m hoping we can go back a few more times this winter!
