Today I felt like I was back in my earlier years, out skating on the ice on a Saturday afternoon. Loved it! A friend lives in a house right on a small lake and invited a few folks over to skate and enjoy a few warm beverages by the fire. Admittedly, there was some wind that kicked up that challenged us a time or two, but otherwise it was a wonderful afternoon. I was thrilled to see some guys out on the ice, playing some old school pond hockey. There were also a few ice fisherman out. They made me feel a little better when I asked how thick the ice was and they said “oh, a good foot and a half”. I’m sure that makes my mom feel better if she’s reading this too. 😉 I included a few shots of the lake…and yes, those are my ice skating marks.
