More than 30 years ago, my mom signed me up for figure skating. Little did she know that was going to result in being the head costumer for the little birds number for the skating carnival. I wasn’t a particularly good skater – weak ankles they said – so I didn’t pursue it much further. Last time I skated was about 15 years ago on the Rideau Canal. That lead to about 4 days that I couldn’t walk very well after using muscles that hadn’t seen the light of days in quite some time. Emile hasn’t skated since grade school. So, when Emile and I were invited to skate at Robson Square we both said sure, but with a bit of wariness.We had a wonderful time spending probably 1 1/2 hours on the ice with kids and beginners; show offs and hand-in-hand couples.
February 2nd, 2013 Extra-Ordinary: Learning to skate again – and we both did really well.
(forgive my pictures, moving on a cell phone in low neon-back light was pretty tough).
