On a completely personal note ... [Feb. 6th, 2011|10:40 pm]
Young Geoffrey

... Ottawa's canal, "the world's longest skating rink", is a marvel of public park space.

Raven and I went out (again, as has become a habit with us) and donned skates today and, as ever, the broad iceway was crowded with people, young and old, fit and not, taking in the air and working out their bodies among their fellow citizens.

The mercury probably hit +1 so the ice was lousy, but still, a good time was had by thousands and (for me), best of all, Raven three times let go of my hand and skated solo!

Winter ain't just for bicyling, kids!

Thanks to Winterpeg, the Rideau Canal has no longer been "the world's longest skating rink" since 2008. But when it comes to the area of skating surface, ours puts the 1.2KM-longer-counterpart in the shade. Yay!!

Curse those prairies provinces!

Yes, even Saskatchewan, even if they don't have anything to do with it!
