I'm going to SKATE!
Yes - Canadian, born and bred. Never been on ice skates before. I have to blame my mother. (It's always the mother's fault - right Mom?). Well, I got fitted with some hockey skates last night, and I'm going to just do it!
The young man at the sports equipment store gave me some advice for learning: "it's step-step-glide -- that's how the little four-year-olds learn".
Two blocks from our apartment, City Hall has a beautifully maintained public ice rink.
In the summer, it's a splash pad (hence the big silver trumpet-y thingies.
I hope I don't do myself any permanent injury!
