The Walnut Creek ice rink reappeared earlier this month! Emily and I decided to have a skate around today (it's cheaper on weekdays than on weekends). It was nice to be back on low-friction blades instead of four wheels, and we skated for over an hour before a combination of aching ankles and age forced us off.
We do love it!
The visits to In'n'Out haven't helped Em's figure, but the skating will soon sort that out.
Tentative first steps (she says she hasn't done this in 20 years).
It wasn't crowded.
Gearing up for my triple toe loop.
Emily tries a quadruple Salchow.
Perhaps we should both arrange for some of these...
