Skating, for me, has always been a challenge.
As a kid, I was daredevil enough to put on skates, go full speed on a rink and ram into other skaters because I had no clue how to stop!
Nowadays, this is more about avoiding to fall and breaking any part of my ageing body!
That being said, I had always wanted to go skating on the lake, especially this formidable loop that the village prepares for the winter. I believe it’s the third winter people can enjoy skating on the loop, as before, The Parks Department only cleared a space for hockey and general skating near the town beach.
Well, it was rough and difficult (for me, as a beginner) but enjoyable, as we met families, kids and elders, all appreciating the views and the warm day on the lake.
