Skating at The Forks

Yesterday I had an amazing morning at The Forks. As a kid I used to love going skating on the river trail downtown, so when I read in the Winnipeg Free Press that the ice was frozen and ready to skate on, I decided to take a trip to the market.

I began the day with a hearty breakfast from Danny's, walked around for a little while to look at the shops, and then eventually made my way outside. The air was cold, but I was more concerned about falling on my butt than about my ears turning red or my nose dripping.

After a while I started gaining confidence in my skating ability and soon I was doing laps around the ice. I think I probably spent 45 minutes outside just gliding around, going backwards, trying to do the bunny hop. It was a lot of fun!

I feel like I had such a great time there yesterday, I might just have to fit in another visit to The Forks before classes start again. Currently only a portion of the river trail is open, so it'd be nice to go back there again this winter when the whole thing is open.

But enough about skating! I was looking at The Forks' website and it looks like there are a lot of other fun things being planned for this winter. To check out what's coming, click here.

Happy holidays everyone, and good luck in the new year!
