Hey, Skating Started Today!

    I know , I'm always posting about skating, but I have to keep you and myself on track with the season.

    Today many bloggers commented about the waning summer and the approach of fall. It's a milestone in the year. The weather is still nice but it's changing. 

    Well, skating marks an important change in the year for me. I was surprised that I had lots of zip after not skating since April. It was a fun afternoon. Now only five of us skated but it wasn't well publicized.




       
       Now I didn't get photos of skating. Everything I took I dumped. I still have a few things to learn about taking photos of skaters.

    It's a little difficult to put on clothes for the rink. It's really hard to remember your gloves.

  1. Obviously you are skating at an indoor rink. I know it gets cold up there, but not that fast!

    1. Yes, an indoor rink. They can make some very nice ice by modifying ice temperatures.

  3. I haven't skated since I was 16. In fact for most of my life I have not lived anywhere near a rink.

    1. We are in an arena but of course the temp has to be low to keep the ice.

  6. Yes summer is fading away helas, I enjoyed it very much this year with lots of sunshine. To skate is a bit early here and I don't do it anymore, to wobbly for me.

  11. Hi Red, One of the things I like about Hiawatha House is that you keep us on track with the season. I like that comment by Weekend-Windup ... "Be careful while skating."

    1. Well, I've forgotten my gloves before. It's not really too cold. I didn't wear gloves at all until I was 65,

  13. How neat to be able to skate. I have tried a couple of times but my ankles wouldn't stay up straight and the blades looked at half list, as did I :)

    1. Modern day skates can do wonders for any weak ankle. The boot is very supportive.

  14. Skating is great exercise! I used to skate on a frozen creek as a child and later in ice arenas with my kids, but a couple years ago I got out my skates and tried to skate at an outdoor rink and my ankles wouldn't hold me up! I thought it was like riding a bicycle -- you never forget. Wrong!

  17. Red you amaze me and I love that you're back on skates once again. That's so awesome that you have others to skate with! Yup, you bet winter is just around the corner and this reminds me of it, not that I welcome it, but what else can one do except dance in the snow? :-)

  18. Goodness! You have so much energy, Red. I tried to learn how to skate in Chicago, but I kept falling. I just couldn't get balanced. Sigh...
