Kristy Yamaguchi Ice Skate Rink

I went to San Francisco to go Ice Skating for Theresa's b-day.  We had sooooo much fun.  As we always do when we go ice skating.  Everyone always has their doubts about their skating skills.  I know I can skate, but everyone always fear of getting back on it .. even for a quick second.  Which was exactly how long I felt fearful.. then I started to glide on the ice.  Rounded a couple laps and then I felt it.. I felt free as a bird.. though there were many people on the ice along with me.. I felt like it was my rink, and skating was all I wanted to do.  It was my rink to go as fast as I want, as slow as I want.. and there was nothing anyone can do about it.

  But of course.. it is not my rink.. and I shared the space with everyone there.  Though I wish the people who fell would get up a little faster than they did, because it is a bit scary thinking about running over fingers with ice skates.  Pretty gross actually.. but don't worry I didn't skate over any fingers.  But as I was watching others around me.. geez.. there were a lot of close calls.  One of the the kids with us collided with a little girl and he required the need of a band-aid (eeks.. I think he got cut on her skate) so pretty dangerous.  But all in all .. jolly great fun. 

Dunno if I will going back to the Kristy Yamaguchi Skate Rink this season, if the opportunity rises then of course I'm down.  We may venture out and go ice skating at AT&T park (home of the San Francisco Giants).. we heard word that they will be setting up a rink there for some expedition or show (some Olympian might be there.. not sure) and it will be available for the public for a few days.  So there is a possibility I will skate there too.  We'll just have to wait and see.

Ice skating check.. now I'm waiting to checkmark snowboarding a couple times on my list and I will be a happy camper.. lol.. camping oooh that sounds like fun too.. maybe next year.. i hate camping when it is freezing cold.
