Ice skating

For the first time in years, I got to go ice skating tonight. (Note: This was on my list for things to accomplish during vacation - I'm just about a month late!)

Albie just found out last night about this little place at the center of town near a school where local firefighters filled up a basketball court. It was completely frozen today. Despite some bubbles in the ice, I think I did pretty well. (My thighs and hamstrings are certainly telling me so).

It was -8 degrees Celsius (18 degrees Fahrenheit) out, so we didn't stay there for too long. Still, though, it was the most ice skating I've done in a long time. It made me feel like a real Swede.
