Have you ice skated this year?




Has been years but I really do love to go ice skating...


This photo creates such memories for me. It is not me but has such a resonance for me. Here she tries to appear composed yet still uncertain and praying not to fall, yup that was me...


Have you been skating this year? 


I will most assuredly drag my friends to a rink and give it a whirl! love the cold on your cheeks, the numbness of one's toes and my old red corduroy skating skirt my mother sewed for me...




These photos remind me of the Somerset marsh where we skated, sans the gorgeous backdrop!



My twin brother and I would be dropped off and that was the last I would see of him until we were picked up... 


The boys played ice hockey on the prime ice spot , the girls would skate nearby vying for their attention, my how not much has changed,...

thanks for visiting and Happy Skating,
love hearing your skating memories,

Karen

I use to skate as a kid with my gram-pa. they had a pond we use to skate on, they always had a bonfire going. When I got to be a teen I use to go to the lion's club they flooded a field. I had big yarn pom poms on my skates. My husband is a great skater an old hockey guy.

I love the photos mixed in with the old graphics. I have never ice skated. I've always lived in the south and never had the opportunity. How graceful watching others skate though! Hugs!
