Did you ever skate on the river?Oh, how I remember when I was wee, skating on many frozen creeks and ponds. We didn't have indoor arenas to skate in and we nearly froze our fingers off trying to tighten the laces in our skates while sitting on the benches beside the ice. But what fun it was and how we enjoyed it when we finally got our laces done up. It was so nice to see these folks skating on the Speed River late this afternoon. There were youngsters and some "oldsters" too and my memory went way back to when I used to do this. It was lovely reminiscing. It was also interesting to see the huge cracks in the ice from where the thawed part of the river joins the frozen rink part. Do you have memories like this from when you were little? Share them with us if you'd like. I love to hear memories of others. Map on Google for this area .
