I decided to take advantage of the nice weather yesterday afternoon and went skating at the outdoor skating rink downtown. I love that the city provides this free recreational activity. They have music playing on outdoor speakers, night lights, and heated change rooms.
I also like seeing the diversity of people that use the public skating rinks. Yesterday there was a mom with her three young kids who were involved in an elaborate game of “ice fishing”, a group of teenagers who alternated between checking their cell phones and skating, a twenty-something guy teaching his girlfriend how to skate, an older gentleman out for a short skate on his dinner break from work, and a twenty-something girl practicing her twirls and jumps in the corner.
What winter activities have you been enjoying?
